Los Angeles - Bruce Springsteen's new album leaked on Amazon at the weekend.
The musical legend's upcoming LP High Hopes was briefly available on the online retailer's mobile website on Saturday for fans to download the tracks individually on MP3.
The album originally wasn't due for release until 13 January and Amazon has since realised the error and taken down the album.
However, it is believed fans have already placed the songs on a number of illegal file sharing sites.
High Hopes, which was recorded in New Jersey, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Australia and New York City, features Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello on numerous tracks, as well as a cover of Suicide's Dream Baby Dream.
Meanwhile, the 64-year-old star recently admitted the record was put together in an abnormal manner, unlike other artists who have a structure.
He said earlier this month: "The best way to describe this record is that it's a bit of an anomaly. But not much. I don't really work linearly, like a lot of people do."
However, Springsteen previously said High Hopes was a trip down memory lane for him because he picked a mixture of new material, covers and re-recorded versions of existing songs which he felt "deserved" to be recorded properly.
