It is rumoured that Bruce Springsteen will release a new song this week.

Consequence of Sound is reporting that Springsteen could be set to put out a new track called 'High Hopes' tomorrow (November 19), after artwork and release information was leaked by Danish magazine Wimp.

Consequence of Sound points out that 'High Hopes' isn't a totally new song and that a version of the track - originally released in 1990 by The Havalinas - features on Springsteen's 1996 EP 'Blood Brothers'. However, they go on to state that Springsteen has recently reworked older material for newer releases, such as 'Land of Hope And Dreams' for his last album, 2012's 'Wrecking Ball'. It is possible that the new version was recorded over the summer during Springsteen's tour dates in Australia, when he revealed that he had visited a studio and "did a couple of things that I wanted to put down".

It was recently reported that a US university is offering a theology class on Bruce Springsteen. Rutgers University in New Jersey is offering students the chance to take a semester-long class looking at the biblical references in The Boss' lyrics – from his 1973 debut 'Greetings From Asbury Park, NJ' to his 2012 album 'Wrecking Ball'.

As Time magazine pointed out, Rutgers is not the first US university to bring The Boss into the realms of academia. Princeton University has a sociology course on Bruce Springsteen's America, while Monmouth University in West Long Branch, New Jersey has hosted symposiums on the rock star’s legacy. Meanwhile, the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York offered a history course on the musician.
