It’s only been a year since the release of his 2012 album Wrecking Ball, but now that Miley Cyrus has permanently laid claim to the phrase behind Bruce Springsteen’s 17th album, next year may be as apt as ever for the 64-year-old New Jersey singer’s next release.
According to Billboard and Rolling Stone, Springsteen’s 18th studio album will be out early next year, and a January release date may not be out of the question. Springsteen is already gearing up to release the track “High Hopes,” which will likely be the album’s first single. His new track is due out Nov. 25 and will feature Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello on guitar. Morello previously toured with Springsteen and his E Street Band throughout Australia last summer.
Springsteen’s Wrecking Ball scored the singer’s 10th No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, thanks in part to his single “We Take Care of Our Own.” The song became an impromptu rallying cry for Springsteen’s native New Jersey following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy in October, 2012.
