New Springsteen Album “Leaks” Online, Briefly, Sorta… Well, Not Really…

Springsteen High Hopes

FLAC files? We don’t need no steenkin’ FLAC files!

 Dammit. The one weekend your Uncle Blurt is away from his computer and unable to binge on Amazon.com shopping specials turns out to be the weekend that the new Bruce Springsteen album, High Hopes, gets released via Amazon… weeks early. What happened, according to Billboard, was that the record, a covers/outtakes collection, and due in stores and digitally on Jan. 14, “became available on Saturday for purchase as individual tracks in MP3 format. Although Amazon subsequently removed that option, presumably recognizing its mistake, the album has already made its way onto file-sharing websites through those who purchased it from the online retailer.”

No comment from the Bruce or CBS camp, natch.

 Okay, kids, start your engines, and head over to the file sharing sites, such as this one that has a torrent of the album front and center.
