Bon Jovi Prepping ‘Forever’ Album, Drop Upbeat ‘Legendary’ Single

Bon Jovi are celebrating their fourth decade of rocking with the upcoming release of their 16th album, Forever. The Jersey giants announced the news on Thursday morning (March 14), along with releasing the LP’s first single, the upbeat rock bop “Legendary.”

“This record is a return to joy.  From the writing, through the recording process, this is turn up the volume, feel good Bon Jovi,” said singer Jon Bon Jovi in a statement about the album due out on June 7. The CGI-heavy video for “Legendary” finds the band rocking out in a grassy digital field as leader Bon Jovi sings, “Who are you and who am I/ To think that we could ever fly/ It don’t pay to even try/ Work get paid and just get by,” before busting into the uplifting chorus, “I raise my hands up to the sky/ Don’t need more to tell me I’m alive/ Got what I want/ Cuz I got what I need/ Got a fistful of friends/ That’ll stand up for me/ Right where I am is where I wanna be.”

The rousing chorus packs in several allusions to classic rock songs, including Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” and Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl.” The band will be the subject of the upcoming four-part Hulu docuseries Thank You, Goodnight: The Bon Jovi Story, which will debut on the streamer on April 26.
