Rolling Stone Mag Says...

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

There was another article in Rolling Stone's Rock & Roll Daily today about the upcoming Bon Jovi album. Here's what they had to say today...

Bon Jovi Return to Rock With “The Circle” On November 10th

8/19/09, 12:11 pm EST

Bon Jovi told Rolling Stone that they’ll be going “back to rock & roll” on their next album, and today we learned when their return to their roots will go down: Bon Jovi announced today that their next album The Circle will be released on November 10th. First single “We Weren’t Born To Follow” debuted on radio yesterday, featuring an anthemic chorus of “We weren’t born to follow, come on and get up off your knees, when life is a bitter pill to swallow, you got to hold on to what you believe.” Have a listen at the Island Def Jam site.

The Circle follows the band’s platinum-selling, country-tinged LP Lost Highway. “I think what happened is the fact that we made the kind of Nashville-influenced record, and it created this vacuum now for a big rock record from us. There’s a continued evolution,” guitarist Richie Sambora told Rolling Stone. “[The Circle] doesn’t sound like any other previous record. Everybody that we’ve been playing it for has been real turned on by it, and we’re certainly happy with how it turned out.”

The Circle find Bon Jovi reteaming with producer John Shanks, who also worked with the band on 2005’s Have A Nice Day and 2007’s Lost Highway. Sambora also told RS that Bon Jovi would set out on tour to promote the album sometime in the Spring of 2010, promising that the ensuing trek is “going to be a big one.”

I guess we're stuck with the name The Circle. Can't hardly wait to see what the tour will be called. Anyone wanna take a guess?


Story Update...

There is a new chapter of Sweet Dreams up. Enjoy!


Richie Sambora on the New Album...

So, the new album may not be called The Circle after all. Richie spoke to Rolling Stone about the new album. Here's what he had to say...

Bon Jovi’s last album, 2007’s Lost Highway, saw the longtime Jersey tunesmiths veer off into Nashville territory. And while the album was a sizable hit with their fanbase, on the group’s forthcoming album, guitarist Richie Sambora promises a return to the group’s roots. “It’s back to rock & roll for us, man,” Sambora tells Rolling Stone. “Jon and I had a wonderful time making it. Very proud of it — just getting down to mixing it right now. We hit a very prolific period in our songwriting.” Sambora reveals the band was considering churning out a greatest-hits album, but reports, “We started having so much fun making this record, that we decided we would do a studio album first. It sounds fresh — I think we reinvented ourselves again.”

The album will be out in November, and RS can report the title currently floating around cyberspace is not correct. While he couldn’t reveal the actual album name, Sambora did muse on the band’s evolution since going a bit country on their last LP: “I think what happened is the fact that we made the kind of Nashville-influenced record, and it created this vacuum now for a big rock record from us. There’s a continued evolution… it doesn’t sound like any other previous record. Everybody that we’ve been playing it for has been real turned on by it, and we’re certainly happy with how it turned out.”

Rest easy longtime fans, Sambora promises that the disc is unmistakably Bon Jovi. “There’s going to be some big choruses on there. It sounds like Bon Jovi, but it sounds fresh. We experimented with a lot of new sounds and had a really good time working with [producer] John Shanks, who is also a really good guitar player, so he and I did a lot of ‘weaseling’ with the guitar sounds. There are a lot of really good guitar sounds and new kind atmospheres on the new Bon Jovi record, that I think makes it really modern. I think people are going to dig it, man. And it rocks hard.”

And will Bon Jovi be hitting the road in support of studio album number 11? “Next year. 2010, probably spring time we’ll get going. And we’re going to go for a long time. It’s going to be a big one.”


Jon Spotting...

Jon and Dot were captured here at the after party for the screening of My One and Only at the Blue Parrot Saturday night.

Mr. B is looking mighty fine. He wears a tan well, doesn't he?

PS: If y'all haven't heard the new single that ran rampant all over the web last night, you can find it over at Hath's or at Big Apple Jovi's blog.
