Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello appears in 'High Hopes' clip

The first trailer for Bruce Springsteen‘s HBO documentary has been revealed. See above to watch now.

Titled High Hopes, the film follows Springsteen as he works on his latest album of the same name. ‘High Hopes’, the album, was released in January 2014 and the trailer shows The Boss and his E Street Band as they recruit Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello and begin work on the record.

Speaking about his songwriting process in the preview clip, Springsteen says: “I find I’m trying to resolve something internally. That’s really the thrust. It’s where all the fuel for what you’re going to do is.” High Hopes will air on HBO on April 4.


Bruce Springsteen has recently been on tour in Australia, making headlines by playing a number of unexpected cover versions during his live shows. Springsteen covered a number of songs by Aussie artists including ‘Highway To Hell’ AC/DC, for which he brought on stage Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, ‘Stayin’ Alive’ by The Bee Gees, ‘Friday On My Mind’ by The Easybeats and INXS’ ‘Don’t Change’.

A show in Auckland, New Zealand also saw Springsteen cover Lorde’s ‘Royals’, a cover which she subsequently said made her “teary.”
