With all the political talk, I needed a short music break... With a few clicks of the mouse, I discovered Springsteen announced his next single, 'High Hopes' will be released November 25th. This release date for the single has since started the rumor that a new album is on its way in early 2014.

Here is a live version of Bruce with The E Street Band performed "High Hopes" with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello during a tour of Australia in March.
