High Hopes is the eighteenth studio album by American recording artist Bruce Springsteen, released on January 14, 2014, on Columbia Records. The album was Springsteen's eleventh #1 album in the US, placing him third all-time for most #1 albums only behind The Beatles and Jay-Z. It was his tenth #1 in the UK, putting him joint fifth all-time and level with The Rolling Stones and U2. Rolling Stone named it the second-best album of 2014 on their year end list.

The album features Springsteen's regular backing band, the E Street Band, and guitarist Tom Morello. Contributions from deceased E Street Band members Clarence Clemons and Danny Federici are also included. Co-produced by Ron Aniello, Brendan O'Brien and Springsteen, the album was preceded by the single "High Hopes", and is a collection of cover songs, outtakes and re-imagined versions of tracks from past albums, EPs and tours. A week following the album's release, a music video for "Just Like Fire Would" was released January 22, 2014. A music video for "The Wall" was aired during the 2014 HBO special, Bruce Springsteen's High Hopes. On July 9, 2014, Springsteen released a short film for "Hunter of Invisible Game" which marks his directorial debut.

Springsteen said that the new music was "some of our best unreleased material from the past decade" and among the best of his writing and deserved a proper studio recording. In April 2014, Springsteen released American Beauty, a four track EP of songs that did not make the final cut of High Hopes.
