'High Hopes' finds Bruce Springsteen in a number of different musical settings, and includes the E Street Band members in various large and small combinations as well as guitarist Tom Morello on eight tracks. Besides Morello, the album also includes appearances on several songs by Clarence Clemons, who passed away in 2011, and Danny Federici, who passed away in 2008, on what Springsteen calls "some of our best unreleased material from the past decade." The album was recorded in New Jersey, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Australia and New York City and marks Springsteen's 18th studio album. As Bruce writes in the albums liner notes, "I felt they were among the best of my writing and deserved a proper studio recording."
The AMAZON BONUS LIMITED EDITION* version also includes a live DVD of Bruce and the E Street Band performing the entire "Born In The U.S.A." album in London, England, during the historic Wrecking Ball World Tour.
*This version will be available for a LIMITED TIME ONLY.

64 years young, and still bringing it 'Night after Night after Night'.
Bruce knows the clock is ticking, and he's certainly using that as a motivation to keep touring and to create & release new music more often. 'High Hopes' is a hodge-podge of covers and original material. What it also is, is Bruce's mantra not to tour without supporting a new record.
While Bruce certainly has at least 3-4 great records left in him, this isn't one of them, but it still has some greatness within.
Tom Morello certainly brings a different sound to the proceedings, especially on re-recordings of High Hopes & Tom Joad.
Keep bringing it, Bruce, and please play 'Be True' when u come to South Florida!
I have been a Bruce Fan for over 30 years.....and this one is good. I love the way his voice and style has matured. I love Tommy Morello's guitar, and all members of the E Street Band.
Having said that - this is Not "Born in the USA" It will not spawn any #! Singles. Instead it is a collection of Bruce's heartfelt words of wisdom and comfort.
I love that it is not overproduced and that it can move me from cheers to tears.
This is not a dance album, this is not a Pop Album (remember albums ?) It is eclectic and interesting and inviting and BRUCE.
Bruce offers this gift to you, for you to open and explore and enjoy in your own way - to paraphrase The Boss himself "it is like a friend has written a letter, and you can open the letter and read it and re-read it time and again, each time finding another kind of joy."
I understand Bruce has not authored every song......but he makes them his.
Glad I did not pass on this one !
Bruce already has done a lot of these live and decided that they needed "proper" studio representations.
Bruce and the E Street Band's live shows are in comparable and better than ever!
Their live renditions make their studio albums sound almost
(almost) watered down.
So it's kind of odd for him to take live stuff and make a studio album.
Another odd thing to me is that they have always been an albums band not a singles band.
This cd does not have an underlying theme, just random singles.
Having said all that, it is still new Bruce. As fun and as serious as you want it to be.
Highlights are High Hopes, Down in the Hole, Heavens Wall, the Ghost of Tom Joad, The Wall and Dream Baby Dream.
Not Born To Run or even The Rising but still Bruce and the Boys playing their hearts out.
I can't wait to hear it live!
