HIGH HOPES - Released soon ???


Recommended Posts

Yes. I do. There will be a new album by Sony's artist Bruce Springsteen and it'll be release in January 2014. No other details, dates or track listing sorry.

The source is reliable and "new".

Thank you.

...maybe Bruce just likes the song, so he's putting it out.

...maybe Bruce has written 3 album's worth of masterpieces in the last month, but this song says exactly what he wants to say.

I recall him saying something along the lines of releasing material more frequently than in the past where he would junk a completed project because it wasn't up to his perfectionist notion of what it should be.

...maybe we're all putting more thought into this than he is.

Then again, I don't really see the logic in releasing a new album and a compilation album of sorts near each other, time-wise.

Interesting times ahead. I'll be happy with whatever comes.

Maybe he has it in the can as a result of recording sessions for his own written work so wants to get it out? Contract fillers have been mentioned on this thread and this would be an ideal one. The more I think about the tracks that have been released or rumoured, the more it seems to be a sort of Essential disc 3 affair. Maybe a bit more structured, but that sort of thing. I've got no issue with that. If we also get a new album then, wow. Back in the '90's we could only dream of this much activity.

"@CasinoNancy: ALERT; Single HIGH HOPES comes from a TRACKS 2 release. This is NOT a rumor."

All due respect to CN.....but no source, no official announcement.......yeah, that is pretty much the definition of a rumor.

Not saying it isn't accurate, though.....;)

Emotionally sound mate, just don't like some of the posts. The tone is pretty spiteful. Expressing valid concerns and stating as fact that he's washed up are different things. People have every right to say both, but I've got as much right to challenge that.

Moreover, why do people have to be so insulting that some of us might like HH? The hyperbole is unreal, stating that coz we happen to like HH everything is a masterpice or that we'll defend Bruce to no end. As you said you can be very critical of Bruce, what people need to realize is that just because one might not be on the side of "Bruce should retire/he's washed up, doesn't mean anyone thinks he's flawless.

If Casino Nancy is correct - and I have no reason to doubt her, she seems pretty clued up - and at the risk of upsetting a few people with nervous dispositions, I would be disappointed if this release is a Tracks II rather than an album of new material.

Tracks II type material should come out as legacy material imo.

This is making the rounds...

Published on Nov 10, 2013

May 4, 1970 was the day of the Kent State Massacre. Shortly thereafter, CSN&Y recorded the powerful Neil Young song "Ohio". About a month after the shootings Bruce's early band, Steel Mill, played the String Factory in Richmond VA. Bruce presented this song with no backing from his band mates. It may be the only time he ever performed it. He was 20 years old. This video is for historical purposes only.

I think Kev has it. It makes total sense, the Tracks 2 thing, especially if digital, would just be a nice "dip in if you want to" thing.

That said, with the amount if posts I've seen on here saying that people want a Tracks 2, it just boggles that there aren't more smiles about this.

When you say making the rounds, do you mean, it's leaked from up above?

Tracks II - Would be over the moon...

But I would be somewhat disppointed with it being only compressed digital files and it would be the first time, as far as I know, that Bruce has done this with more than just a single.

I have always believed Bruce (or Bruce Inc as you guys say) try to give us good quality product and with great packaging (Darkness box set is a great example) so not arguing with anyone but I hope it's NOT a digital only release.

And Tracks II AND a new album AND Bruce touring SA the first time... I can die happy...

*EDIT*

AFTER he has played here... :D

would make sense I suppose, a digital-only Tracks 2 release would suit the diehards and a new album released in the new year will appeal to a broader audience seems as it looks likely he'll tour.

I'd say DBD, HH, Electric-Joad and Homestead are a lock if this release is genuinely happening

Just telling you what I've seen on Facebook and Twitter. I do not have any original sourceS. It's pure speculation.
