In light of his announcement of a new studio album coming on January 14, in today's Rock Out ‘Til You Clock Out we bring you Bruce Springsteen's live cover of Just Like Fire Would by legendary Aussie punks The Saints.

Springsteen's folks emailed his database this morning announcing the release of High Hopes, his 18th studio album, on January 14, 2014, and one of the 12 tracks from the album is Springsteen & The E Street Band's cover of Just Like Fire Would, the cracking 1987 single by Brisbane legends The Saints. As shown in the first video below, Springsteen & The E Street Band (including Tom Morello) covered Just Like Fire Would in the opening night of their 2013 Australian tour in Brisbane, and a week later they were in Studios 301 in Sydney recording the track. Also below is the original version from The Saints, which marked something of a second coming for the band (minus founding guitarist Ed Kuepper). Get into it below.
