Amazon leaks Bruce Springsteen's new album 'High Hopes' weeks ahead of scheduled release date

By Gina DiFalco,

Bruce Springsteen’s new album, High Hopes, was made available on Amazon’s mobile website weeks ahead of its scheduled release but it was quickly rescinded.

It was too late, however, as after mobile users were able to purchase the album in its mp3 format, file-sharing websites had access to it. Users weren’t able to purchase the album in its entirety but they were able to buy the tracks one by one.

According to Billboard, Amazon hasn’t revealed whether or not this was a mistake on their behalf. Neither Springsteen or Amazon has publicly commented on the leak.

High Hopes marks the 18th studio album for Springsteen. It’s a follow-up to last year’s Wrecking Ball. The album was scheduled for a Jan. 14 release date and features members of the E Street Band, along with guitarist Tom Morello.

The track list is as follows:
1. High Hopes (Tim Scott McConnell) – featuring Tom Morello
2. Harry’s Place – featuring Tom Morello
3. American Skin (41 Shots) – featuring Tom Morello
4. Just Like Fire Would (Chris J. Bailey) – featuring Tom Morello
5. Down In The Hole
6. Heaven’s Wall – featuring Tom Morello
7. Frankie Fell In Love
8. This Is Your Sword
9. Hunter Of Invisible Game – featuring Tom Morello
10. The Ghost of Tom Joad – duet with Tom Morello
11. The Wall
12. Dream Baby Dream (Martin Rev and Alan Vega) – featuring Tom Morello
