Bruce Springsteen confirms release date for "High Hopes" single; new album in January?

Bruce Springsteen has confirmed details of a new single, "High Hopes".

Reports circulated yesterday [November 18] that Springsteen was prepping "High Hopes", which reports claiming the single was due to be released today.

But a post on Springsteen's website confirms the release date as November 25.

The song was originally recorded by Los Angeles band The Havalinas; Springsteen included a version of it on the 1996 Blood Brothers EP. More recently, Springsteen had been playing the song with the E Street Band during their shows in Australia in March this year.

Meanwhile, Billboard have reported that a new Springsteen studio album might arrive as early as the New Year. The Billboard story claims "Sources tell Billboard that a larger release is on its way, and that a new Springsteen studio album could be out as early as January -- a quick follow-up to 2012's chart-topping Wrecking Ball."
