Amazon accidentally posts Bruce Springsteen's album weeks before release

It seems like everyone is secretly publishing their new albums these days, so it almost didn't really come as a surprise when Bruce Springsteen's High Hopes appeared on Amazon.com's mobile store two weeks before it's scheduled release.

It seems like everyone is secretly publishing their new albums these days, so it almost didn’t really come as a surprise when Bruce Springsteen’s High Hopes appeared on Amazon.com’s mobile store two weeks before it’s scheduled release. The problem? This was not the plan.

On Saturday, the album was live on the seller’s site for a few hours before someone caught wind of the mistake and it was removed. Despite its removal, the mp3s managed to make their way onto file sharing sites almost immediately. The 12-track record hits shelves (and webstores) officially on January 14th, making it Sprinsteen's 18th studio album.
