The new Bruce Springsteen album High Hopes is available to listen to now on CBS.com prior to its release.
If you are in the USA you can hear it here at: High Hopes.
Songs from the album will be also featured during the January 12 episode of The Good Wife. (There was a sneak preview after the series’ January 5 episode).
The album will be available on CBS.com/Springsteen through to Monday, Jan. 13 at 7:00 PM, USET.
The three songs from the album to feature on the January 12 show are: the title track ‘High Hopes,’ ‘Hunter of Invisible Game’ and ‘The Ghost of Tom Joad.’ In the episode, ‘We, the Juries,’ Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Will (Josh Charles) each represent one-half of a couple accused of smuggling drugs, but the courtroom becomes mired in confusion and legal technicalities when they insist on separate juries for each client.
“We love using music in The Good Wife, and we always have the music inform the action and the cutting,” said Robert King and Michelle King, executive producers and creators of The Good Wife. “So when the Bruce Springsteen songs became available, we couldn’t believe our luck. We wished we could use the whole album.”
High Hopes, Bruce Springsteen’s 18th studio album, is set for a January 14, 2014 release on Columbia Records. The album, which was recorded in multiple settings in New Jersey, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Australia and New York City, features Springsteen with members of the E Street Band and guitarist Tom Morello, among others.
“This is music I always felt needed to be released,” writes Springsteen about High Hopes. “From the gangsters of ‘Harry’s Place,’ the ill-prepared roomies on ‘Frankie Fell In Love’ (shades of Steve and I bumming together in our Asbury Park apartment), the travelers in the wasteland of ‘Hunter Of Invisible Game,’ to the soldier and his visiting friend in ‘The Wall,’ I felt they all deserved a home and a hearing.”
