Bon Jovi Returns With New Album ‘Forever’: Stream It Now

Bon Jovi is back! The band dropped its 16th studio album, Forever, on Friday (June 7).

The album comes four years after 2020, which was released, as the title suggests, in 2020. The album peaked at No. 19 on the Billboard 200 albums chart upon its release.

Frontman Jon Bon Jovi chronicled his difficult journey recovering from vocal cord surgery in 2022 in the recent Hulu series Thank You, Goodnight – The Bon Jovi Story, and the rocker shared with EW that the scary roadblock helped inspire Forever. “I went into this surgery and I had a lot of time on my hands — all I could really do was sit around and start to think about songs,” Bon Jovi told the publication. “I started to feel joy again. And we — the collective we, who lived through COVID — we’d all come out of that fog, and we were interacting again. There was a new appreciation for life. And I was having this new appreciation for my body. And it led to all these songs.” 

The 12-track album recorded in seven weeks by Bon Jovi and bandmates keyboardist David Bryan, drummer Tico Torres, bassist Hugh McDonald, guitarist Phil X, percussionist Everett Bradley and rhythm guitarist John Shanks. “Nothing was on delay. It just flowed,” Bon Jovi said of the album that features the soaring “Legendary” and talkbox-assisted “Living Proof,” which he wrote in just two days.
