New Jersey rocker Bruce Springsteen's latest album, "High Hopes," will be available exclusively on for streaming prior to its release date.

This marks the first time the network website has been the host for an album debut.

The music will be available Sunday through Jan. 13.

Three songs from the album -- the title track "High Hopes," "Hunter of Invisible Game" and "The Ghost of Tom Joad" -- will be featured in an episode of the network's legal drama, "The Good Wife," Jan. 12.

"We love using music in 'The Good Wife,' and we always have the music inform the action and the cutting," Robert King and Michelle King, executive producers and creators of "The Good Wife," said in a joint statement Thursday. "So, when the Bruce Springsteen songs became available, we couldn't believe our luck. We wished we could use the whole album."

"High Hopes" is Springsteen's 18th studio album. It is set for release Jan. 14 through Columbia Records.
