Bon Jovi has yet another album in the pipeline, and the band’s namesake and leader has an idea of what it will look like.
Jon Bon Jovi says the New Jersey rockers’ 15th studio LP will be called Bon Jovi: 2020, and it will feature more socially-conscious themes.
According to Variety, Bon Jovi made the announcement during the band’s acoustic set on-board the Runaway to Paradise Mediterranean Cruise this week. He said he has a clear vision for the album that will include songs about veterans dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder and the recent mass shootings in the U.S.
“I’m very happy with it,” he said. “It’s a different record.”
Bon Jovi’s last album was 2016’s This House is Not for Sale, which the 57-year-old told the audience dealt with personal matters.
Bon Jovi recently wrapped up a European tour and will go back on the road in South America next month. Watch them perform their early classic “Runaway” from Sonderborg, Denmark on June 12th.
