Tracks from Bruce Springsteen’s new album, High Hopes, will be heard during a new episode of the acclaimed CBS drama The Good Wife. CBS’ website will also feature a full stream of the album starting next week.
The album’s title track, “Hunter of Invisible Game” and a new version of “The Ghost of Tom Joad” will appear during the Good Wife episode “We, The Juries.” According to CBS News, the episode airs on Jan. 12.
CBS.com will also have a special page set up for fans to stream High Hopes from Jan. 5 to Jan. 13.
High Hopes was announced in November and will be released on Jan. 14. It is The Boss’ 18th studio album, but is very different from his past work. It will feature some remakes of family songs, like “Tom Joad,” mixed with unreleased tracks and covers. Some new songs were recorded with guitarist Tom Morello in Australia, while unreleased songs feature the late Danny Federici and Clarence Clemons.
Some lucky fans actually got to hear the album very early this week when Amazon accidentally posted MP3 copies of the individual songs. Amazon and Springsteen did not comment on the leak.
The album follows the 2012 release of Wrecking Ball, which featured Morello on several songs.
