Don't get your hopes up too high

By January 10, 2014

Follow me on:

Usually, new studio albums contain new music, but for the first time in his long and distinguished career, Bruce Springsteen is coming out with an album consisting of covers, new arrangements of songs he's previously recorded, and songs that were recorded for, but not included on earlier albums. In the parlance of record label PR folks, High Hopes is an album made up entirely of "bonus tracks".

Springsteen turns 65 this year, a fact which has some significance in the context of next week's (1/14/14) release of his 18th studio album. It's an album in which the artist does something he's never done before: rest on past laurels.
