Jon Bon Jovi opens up about Bon Jovi's weighty new album '2020'

Jon Bon Jovi has described Bon Jovi’s upcoming new album ‘Bon Jovi: 2020’ as “a real statement record”.

The titular frontman first revealed the album’s title on his Runaway to Paradise Mediterranean cruise back in August, and in a fresh interview with Extra, he has now spoken about it further.

Despite the connotations of the title linking it to the 2020 Presidential campaign, staunch Democrat Jon Bon Jovi insists “it’s not political.”

“The album is called ‘2020,’” Bon Jovi explained. “It’s a real statement record… It’s not political, but it’s very socially conscious, you know, just awareness of so many things going on in the world right now… whether it is the environment or politics, it’s the wider array of things that need our attention right now.

“The Amazon is burning and the hurricanes are flooding and people need to bond together. We're all in this together at the end of the day.”


Jon Bon Jovi first revealed Bon Jovi had commenced work on the follow-up to 2016’s ‘This House Is Not for Sale’ back in March when he posted two videos on Instagram from the studio.

The two 15-second Instagram stories, which expired after 24 hours, depicted the singer together with keyboardist David Bryan, guitarist Phil X, drummer Tico Torres and bassist Hugh McDonald at Ocean Way Nashville Recording Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.

‘This House Is Not for Sale’ was the first Bon Jovi album to feature new lead guitarist Phil X following the departure of Richie Sambora in 2013.

The subsequent multi-year This House Is Not For Sale Tour included stadium shows in Liverpool, London and Coventry back in June.

One of the best-selling bands of all time, Bon Jovi have shifted more than 130 million records worldwide since the release of their eponymous debut in 1984.

Fucking hell, if they're going to start singing about climate change that'll about wrap it up for me and I might have to stop giving them my obligatory single listen, which is all I can get through these days. 

A real statement would be to actually record a good album again.

New video for 'Limitless'. Bon Jovi keeps on 'rocking'... ;)

 

 

That's horrendously bad. Verses sound like "We Didn't Start The Fire" by Billy Joel. We know ole Johnny like to steal.

That Limitless is OK.
Can't help but feel if there were some gang vocals doing the second "Limitless" in the chorus, rather than Jon doing the fake echoy effect by repeating the song, it would be better.
Whole song coule be a lot better if it had different production and edge, but I guess with Bon Jovi, you get Bon Jovi.
they're still around, so some people out there are appreciating what they are doing.

I don't hate is as much as most of y'all, but it's certainly not great. 

Who on earth is actually in the band now? I see Tico and David Bryan, but who are the other 15 guys?

Yep, but apparently they are buying.
I'm guessing they capacity for their concerts is less these days with all the 50 year old fat women who idolised 80's Jon

Good lord that's terrible.  Like the guy above said, it sounds like Billy Joel, only much, much worse.  And I know there are guitars probably being played but it sure doesn't much sound like it.  It's like they took a belt sander to this song and eliminated any "edge" to it at all.  I realize bands evolve over time but...yeah.

I feel like I should be ashamed to express my honest thoughts on that. But it needs to be said anyway. Fucking, terrible. Horrible. 

I do, however, like that little guitar riff that appears two or three times in the song. 

Sadly, the rest just doesn't work for me at all, on any level.

    • Forgot to mention this here, but last month I was officially declared as in remission.
    • Hope he makes a full recovery. If it was me, I would change next years tour name to Operation Heartcrime.
    • Former QUEENSRŸCHE Singer GEOFF TATE Underwent Aortic Valve Replacement December 6, 2022   May contain affiliate links   Former QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate has revealed that he underwent an aortic valve replacement this past summer. According to NHS, an aortic valve replacement is a type of open-heart surgery used to treat problems with the heart's aortic valve.   The aortic valve controls the flow of blood out from the heart to the rest of the body. An aortic valve replacement involves removing a faulty or damaged valve and replacing it with a new valve made from synthetic materials or animal tissue.   The 63-year-old musician discussed his health in a new interview with Beneath A Desert Sky. Asked how he is feeling, nearly five months after his operation, Tate said: "I feel really good overall. This might be the first time I'm telling someone in the press what I went to the hospital for. I had a procedure done called an aortic valve replacement in my heart. Long story short, I was feeling very fatigued one day while on tour. It was challenging for me to climb stairs. Anyway, I thought it best to get checked out, and after several tests from my doctor, he indicated that this particular type of surgery needed to be done. I'd say it took around a month [after the surgery] before I started feeling better. Honestly, I could barely walk after it, and I couldn't sing at all. Before this, I'd never been in a hospital in my life."   He added: "I can't say that I'm feeling '100 percent' better, so to speak. However, I'm definitely feeling a lot better now than I was over the summer. Just taking it a day at a time and am grateful to get back on the road." On July 3, Tate took to his Facebook page to share a photo of him with Dr. Sami Kueri from the department of cardiovascular surgery at the Universitäts-Herzzentrum Freiburg-Bad Krozingen (University Heart Center Freiburg) in Bad Krozingen, Germany, and he included the following message: "All my gratitude to the talented Dr. Sami Kueri for giving me a healthy heart!! Feeling so much better each day!" In June, Tate said that he would take a few months off the road as he recovered from a medical procedure.   On June 13, Geoff, who fronted QUEENSRŸCHE for 30 years — from the band's inception through 2012 — took to his social media to write: "I am having a medical procedure and my health professionals want me to recover over the Summer. I will be back and rocking South America in January. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the road." Tate's recent tour celebrated the 30th anniversary of QUEENSRŸCHE's "Empire" and "Rage For Order" albums. In April 2014, Tate and QUEENSRŸCHE announced that a settlement had been reached after a nearly two-year legal battle where the singer sued over the rights to the QUEENSRŸCHE name after being fired in 2012. Fellow original QUEENSRŸCHE members Michael Wilton (guitar),Scott Rockenfield (drums) and Eddie Jackson (bass) responded with a countersuit. The settlement included an agreement that Wilton, Rockenfield and Jackson would continue as QUEENSRŸCHE, while Tate would have the sole right to perform the albums "Operation: Mindcrime" and "Operation: Mindcrime II" in their entirety live.   Tate was replaced in QUEENSRŸCHE by former CRIMSON GLORY singer Todd La Torre. Geoff will embark on a tour in 2023 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Operation: Mindcrime".
