The new Bruce Springsteen single, “High Hopes,” will be released next Monday, November 25, 2013. It’s a fairly recent recording, possibly made in Australia while Springsteen and the E Street Band were touring Australia earlier this year. Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello Tom Morello plays wah-wah guitar on the track and there’s a horn section.
Springsteen and the band augmented by Morello performed “High Hopes” while touring Australia in March.
During an interview in June Springsteen said that he and the band and Morello went into the studio in Australia.
“We did a couple of things that I wanted to put down,” Springsteen told Rolling Stone. “Being with Tommy was exciting.”
Billboard reports that a new Springsteen album “could be out as early as January — a quick follow-up to 2012’s chart-topping Wrecking Ball.”
Here’s Springsteen and the E Street Band and Tom Morello performing “High Hopes” on stage.
