Bruce Springsteen Confirms New Album for 2014
Bruce Springsteen confirmed plans for a new studio album, High Hopes, scheduled for release January 14. The eighteenth studio album from Springsteen will serve as the follow up to 2012’s Wrecking Ball and will include a mix of original material (new and old) as well as covers. Springsteen has tapped legendary Pearl Jam producer Brendan O’Brien as the lead for his latest project.
Among the reworked old songs is “The Ghost of Tom Joad,” which will feature Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello. The song was previously released in 1995 as a part of the album of the same name. The covers include Suicide’s “Dream Baby Dream,” which Springsteen has played live throughout his Wrecking Ball tour and “High Hopes,” originally written by The Havalinas and covered by Bruce for his EP Blood Brothers.
