Bruce Springsteen has re-recorded The Ghost Of Tom Joad with Rage Against The Machine star Tom Morello for a new album of covers and revamps.

High Hopes, which will be The Boss' 18th studio album, also features eight other collaborations with Morello, who temporarily joined Springsteen's E Street Band on its 2013 Australian tour while regular guitarist Steven Van Zandt was filming his Netflix series Lilyhammer in Scandinavia.

The new album, which also features fan favourites Harry's Place, Frankie Fell In Love and Dream Baby Dream, will be released in January (14).
