New Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen has announced that he will release High Hopes on January 14th that features “some of our best unreleased material from the past decade.”
The album, available on CD and double vinyl, finds Springsteen in a number of different musical settings, and includes the members of the E Street Band as well as guitarist Tom Morello on eight of the album’s twelve tracks, and many additional players. Recorded in New Jersey, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Australia and New York City, High Hopes marks Bruce’s 18th studio album and that features many tracks getting the studio treatment for the first time ever.
“American Skin,” “Ghost Of Tom Joad” and “The Wall,” which fans are most familiar with from their live recordings, finally have what Springsteen calls “a proper studio recording.”
High Hopes also includes his own liner notes that detail the album’s evolution, viewable now at brucespringsteen.net.
A Limited Edition CD/DVD set will be available exclusively through Amazon that features a DVD of Springsteen and the E Street Band performing the entire Born In The U.S.A. album London, England, during the historic Wrecking Ball World Tour. This set will be available for a limited time only.
To celebrate the album’s announcement, director Thom Zimny built a collage featuring photos from Danny Clinch, Australian tour footage featuring Tom Morello shot by Chris Hilson, and vintage documentary footage set to the title song.
