Bon Jovi Completes New Album, Returns to Universal Music Group

5/25/2016 by Michele Amabile Angermiller and Ray Waddell

 

Bon Jovi shared some big news on Twitter today (May 25), announcing that a new album, to be titled This House Is Not For Sale, is completed.

 

To celebrate, the band posted a photo taken at Electric Lady Studio in New York City on its website, which included band members Jon Bon Jovi, David Bryan, Tico Torres, Hugh McDonald, Phil X and producer John Shanks.

 

After word arrived last summer that Bon Jovi had fulfilled its contract on Mercury Records, in what lead singer Jon Bon Jovi called the “end of an era,” the new album will be released in partnership with Island/Universal Music Group, according to a source, marking the group's return to UMG. Indeed, the singer is proudly wearing a label shirt in the photo.

Hugh's in the band!
Wonder if he gets to be in the film clips as well now?

 

I think I heard a new song on the radio the other day which sounded a lot like them.

Light poppy rock is the best way to describe it. Sounded ok, but I'm not inspired to run out and buy the CD.

They lost me around Crush.

Amazingly this is right about half way through their career time wise and album wise.

I'm not sitting here wondering what I missed... lol

 

To their credit, they made all the right moves to perpetuate themselves.

Had they not started targeting the light rock crowd, they surely would have died.

Never listened to them in full, but everytime a friend of mine had his iPod on shuffle I was surprised when I heard a good Bon Jovi song and upon looking found out that they were from ''Have A Nice Day'' or ''Bounce'' (just listen to the solo on the song ''Have A Nice Day'' and you'll realize there was still hope). I couldn't tell you any song names cause I would have to go back and listen to those albums myself but I think there were at least a few good tracks on the aforementioned ''Bounce'' and ''Have A Nice Day''. I think ''Lost Highway'' is where things really startet going south and the following album (The Circle) couldn't save things either

This House is not for sale. Worst album name ever! I stayed on longer than most. Have a nice day was my last album.

 

Completely agree about the album title. I absolutely hate it. For an album title, it is absolutely truly horrendous.

 

Anyway, I'm still on board. Always interested to hear what Bon Jovi release. Though I thought by now Sambora would be back, and it just really doesn't feel right without him. Hoping for something good, but very skeptical, to be honest.

So sad that the 30th. anniversary of one of the greatest albums in our genre's history will come and go without so-much as a whimper.

 

Jon and Richie must REALLY be on pretty much f-u terms now-a-days, I suppose? This would have been the perfect time for a reunion and a SWW anniversary tour. But those days are LONG gone, and my desire to revive them is little more than wasted time. Hell, the two minutes I just spent writing this comment are two minutes while on my death-bed I'm sure I'll wish I had back.

 

Absolutely ZERO interest in this one... none!

Last decent release was "Keep The Faith"....I doubt if I could find an EP of songs out of everything that has come out since...

 

This!!

+1

 

Since that one they went from full-album buy to single-songs buy.

 

And since the crap of What About Now, to just no-buys.

I remain open minded. There have been tracks from all the recent albums that I have liked, yes even 'The Circle', 'What About Now' and 'Burning Bridges', so I remain in hope that they still have it in them to give us some decent tunes, although a classic album, I very much doubt.

I think the title is a simple metaphor.

 

I'm guessing Jon has privately been offered MUCHO DINERO to reconnect with Richie and release a new album that harkens back to the glory days.

 

He's made it very clear he has no interest in doing anything like that. He may be an asshole, but at least he's not a lying asshole.

 

Thanks for the memories, Jon. Adios, amigo.

There doesn't appear to be any bad blood between Jon and Richie. I don't know why folks are implying there is.

Jonjovi lost their sound after New Jersey. Can't stand 99% of what came after that

In all honesty, this is one band that I pretty much completely ignore. Even if the first three/four albums are considered classics.

If Jon and Richie were on good terms, wouldn't he be in the band?

 

You'd think so, especially in an era whereby "Reunions" are so incredibly profitable. But Jon doesn't need Richie... The Soccer-Moms who buy his new music in droves couldn't tell you the name of one other band member, nor could they care less.

 

The only reason I bother posting in threads such as this is my incredible love affair with "The band that was" still remains strong to this very day. I may loath everything Jon and his band has become, but I'll forever defend those first four albums with all my being.

Might be on good terms relationally, but not musically. If Richie wants to Rock, but Jon doesn't, why would he waste his time with him? Perhaps he values his artistic output more than the money. It's not like he's hurting financially.

But does Richie "want to rock?" His solo output since 'Stranger in this town' has been far, far worse than anything Bon Jovi have ever released. Ever.

    • The Aussies right, this is against the rules, this is a no crossover thread
    • C'mon Doggy. We've been over this. Posts in this thread must be of a certain standard.
    • No he can push all he wants, he can bitch and fight and argue, and say the most insane liberal shit he can think of, but first this morning I had to fucking hear it from Karisa, then I get on here to escape her and Glens being a disrespectful motherfucker, we can talk shit, and insult each other, and clown and make fun, and be mean as we want, but when you start talking to me like im a fucking punk then my attitude will follow suit, Ive gone above and beyond to treat HH community with respect and I am about as laid back as your going to find me on here, but if we are gonna be mean, then just get it out in the open, cause I got zero problem with mean, but dont think for a second im not gonna be mean back, theres a huge line between trolling and talking to someone like their a bitch, trust me I know, I do both daily, this is the last im going to say about this, this is my position, so laugh it up, make your jokes, talk your shit, then drop it, fuckin liberals, lol
    • What is the new Covid variant and why is it a concern? Scientists have detected a new Covid-19 variant called B.1.1.529 and are working to understand its potential implications. About 100 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and Botswana.   B.1.1.529 has a very unusual constellation of mutations, which are worrying because they could help it evade the body’s immune response and make it more transmissible, scientists have said. Any new variant that is able to evade vaccines or spread faster than the now-dominant Delta variant may pose a significant threat as the world emerges from the pandemic. Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, said the R value, or effective reproduction number, of the B.1.1.529 variant in the South African province of Gauteng, where it was first found, was now 2 – a level of transmission not recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, before restrictions began to be imposed. For an R of anything above 1, an epidemic will grow exponentially.
    • Now kids... fight nice. This is the Flamefest section, so there's a bit more latitude here than in other areas. I think Glen is deliberately pushing your buttons, i.e., trolling you... especially since he "couldn't care less about U.S. politics"... *ahem*. He know he can push you into a rant. Don't fall for it. Ignore him like most of the rest of the people here do.
    • While I'm in the atheist camp I do not have a problem with most of the people who have faith in God....to each their own...as for Xmas , it is a holiday and should be about family and if religion is a necessary part of it for you, then so be it.....
