Bruce Springsteen’s “High Hopes” Streaming Early Online

Tunes from the record to be featured on “The Good Wife”

Well, if you want to hear Bruce Springsteen’s latest record High Hopes early, you can now do so legally. After Amazon accidentally leaked the record briefly last week, CBS is streaming the entire album online from now until its official release next week.  As an additional plug for the album, CBS is announcing that tunes from High Hopes will be featured on the January 12th episode of its television series The Good Wife.

A first among The Boss’s 18 studio albums, High Hopes is a hodgepodge of outtakes from earlier recordings and reworkings of older tunes from the Springsteen catalog, along with some originals and covers that fans have heard performed live but were not previously recorded in studio.  Drawing from so many sources can be a risk for any album because it can make things sound a bit patchwork-y, but Springsteen’s collaboration with guitarist Tom Morello on the record helps lend some cohesion to the project.

High Hopes officially drops January 14, but take a listen here and see what you think!
