HIGH HOPES - Released soon ???

Recommended Posts

No, "four discs" was just an exemple based on the first boxset to explain what I meant.

Some people will be expecting multiple discs because of the use of the phrase "Tracks 2" though. People can be very literal-minded.

Well, we live in twitter times, you know. ;) People take those rumors as the gospel. If a Tracks II is announced as a fact, it's inevitable fans think of a multi-disc boxset.

Yes, but my point was that "Tracks 2" was just used by Casino Nancy as a convenient shorthand. She went on to clarify that: "May not be Tracks in name or multi disc but covers/vault clearing etc"

Fine, so we will most probably have the press release tomorrow, as it has always been said.

And that's what scared me just above, BTW. ;)

Bruce posted a thank you message and video which I interpreted as marking the

end of the Wrecking Ball tour.

What do the confirmed dates in Australia and South Africa in 2014 mean then?

Nice to see Backstreets steadfastly refusing to even acknowledge the growing storm on the news page.

So far into Landau's pocket.

Well, Chris essentially works for JLM so he cannot make a move without an official nod.

Well, they are probably right, IMHO. They know a press release is coming in twelve-eighteen hours, which might turn a most cherished "Tracks II" into a nightmarish "Essential disc 4" or so. There is no reason for them in taking chances at the moment.

Chances? They're not popping out for a loaf whilst under witness protection.

It's a fanzine.

Ok, but their reliabilty would be at stake nonetheless. And they usually take good care of it. All you might want to know about rumors can be found on their forum.

High hopes official posted on official twitter

And on brucespringsteen.net. Simply "Coming November 25th" and the album (???) cover.

Bizarrely, the official announcement doesnt even say its a single.

That pic is the cover of the single. Whether its also the cover of the album (if that is indeed the title of the album) I guess we'll know very soon

Fascinating reading some of these posts and the time spared to give such a forensic analysis of the merits of what people think an album might be, without knowing. No time for me to have such concerns, too busy with our baby, am just happy to know we may have a new album soon

I hope this Kev chap is correct.

A slice of Tracks 2, preferably out takes from 2000 onwards, plus a new album would be great to look forward to in January.

Can we stay on topic? I don't know that guy, but I see no reason for insulting him.
