NEW YORK (AFP) - Bruce Springsteen fans will be able to stream all 12 tracks of the rocker's new High Hopes album starting on Sunday - if they're in the United States (US), that is.

Broadcaster CBS said on Thursday it will host the pre-release at www.cbs.com/springsteen ahead of a Jan 12 episode of its legal drama The Good Wife featuring three songs from the record.

But a CBS spokesman told Agence France-Presse that "streaming of the album is restricted to the United States only" - leaving fans abroad to cool their heels until High Hopes gets its general release on Jan 14.

Some fans already have The Boss's 18th studio album - his first since Wrecking Ball in 2012 - on their digital players after it briefly popped up on Amazon.com as an MP3 download last weekend.
