Bruce Springsteen’s eighteenth studio album “High Hopes” is set to release on January 14 but fans will be happy to know they will have early access to the tracks via CBS.com/springsteen. Beginning Sunday January 5, the album will be available for streaming as a result of Springsteen’s exclusive early release deal with CBS network. Those who tune into CBS’ ‘The Good Wife’ for the January 12 episode, will be treated to three snippets of new Springsteen material from ‘High Hopes’. According to some publications, the purpose of the deal is to attract Springsteen’s older fans to the show and to CBS.com. However, many speculate that the deal was essentially spoiled when the album was leaked on Amazon last week.
Do you think the deal with fulfill its purpose in spite the Amazon leak?
