Bruce Springsteen Covers The Saints For New High Hopes Album

Bruce Springsteen fans can look forward to a brand new studio album titled ‘High Hopes’ in January and the album includes a cover of The Saints ‘Just Like Fire Would’.

Springsteen performed the Chris Bailey Saints song when he played in Brisbane earlier this year. Bailey formed The Saints in Brisbane in 1974 and released the original song in 1986 on the ‘All Fool’s Day’ album.

‘High Hopes’ is a solo record but includes members of the E Street Band and Springsteen’s fill-in guitarist Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave). Springsteen has re-recorded his song ‘The Ghost of Tom Joad’, also once covered by Morello in Rage Against The Machine, for the album.

The album, recorded over a number of years, also features former E Street Band members Clarence Clemons, who passed away in 2011, and Danny Federici, who died in 2008. Springsteen says the album is “some of our best unreleased material from the past decade.”

The video for ‘High Hopes’ features video from the 2013 Australian tour.
