Most anticipated albums of 2014
Beck, Wu-Tang Clan, U2, and even more Kanye West
Bruce Springsteen - 'High Hopes'
Release date: Jan. 14
Why it's anticipated: The Boss's 14th studio album is a mixed bag of songs, including new studio versions of such songs as "American Skin (41 Shots)" "The Ghost of Tom Joad," and a cover of Suicide's "Dream Baby Dream," recorded with Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello, while he filled in for Steven Van Zandt. Springsteen calls the set "some of our best unreleased material from the past decade."
