Bruce Springsteen has announced he'll release a new single on Nov. 25. Titled "High Hopes," the vibrant song is actually a cover of a track by short-lived Los Angeles band The Havalinas, and fans will note that Springsteen included an earlier version on the 1996 documentary, "Blood Brothers."
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."
The E Street Band performed "High Hopes" with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello during a tour of Australia in March, and Springsteen confirmed in an interview over the summer that all parties "had a recording session" while Down Under. "We did a couple of things that I wanted to put down," Springsteen told Rolling Stone in June. "Being with Tommy was exciting."
