Rock superstar Bruce Springsteen is back on the music scene with a bang. Even though the ‘Born In The USA’ singer’s latest album has been leaked on Amazon on December 28, 2013, ‘High Hopes’ still managed to do extraordinarily well and debut at the top of the UK album chart.

The new record is the ‘Glory Days’ singer’s tenth number one album in the UK, which enabled Springsteen to surpass the likes of ABBA, Michael Jackson, David Bowie and Queen on the list of most chart toppers and tied him with rock legends The Rolling Stones and U2. The only artists with more number one albums in the UK are The Beatles with fifteen, pop icon Madonna with twelve and Robbie Williams and Elvis Presley with eleven each.
