High Hopes for new Bruce Springsteen single

I've avoided joining in the speculation and rumours over a new album before next year's tour but the release of High Hopes next week is a massive indicator that there's more to come.

High Hopes is of course the Tim Scott song from his 1990 album with the Havalianas, and previously released on Springsteen's Blood Brothers EP.

More recently it was reworked, added some Tom Morello fire, and brought out on the E Street Band's Wrecking Ball tour. For me personally it was the third best highlight on their tour of Australia this year.

Which makes the release of the song as a single on November 25 a massive boost for fans in Australia.

Last time the song was an incredible start to the second show in Brisbane - I reckon it could be top of the list for kick-starting the tour in Australia come February 5 in Perth.
