Bruce Springsteen’s New Album Leaks Via Amazon Download
Bruce Springsteen’s new album High Hopes was mistakenly uploaded to Amazon this past Saturday, over two weeks before the album’s official release date. While the LP couldn’t be bought in full, each of the 12 tracks could be downloaded separately. Amazon realized they messed up quickly and took down the album, but file-sharing websites began seeding links in no time.
The album is scheduled to drop January 14 and includes some of Springsteen’s favorite live recordings with Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine as well as studio outtakes with Clarence Clemons, Springsteen’s longtime saxophonist who passed away in 2011. The album also houses three covers songs and a spruced up version of “The Ghost of Tom Joad.” — Max Weinstein
