Bon Jovi are working on a new album, and Jon Bon Jovi has said that it will be called Bon Jovi: 2020.

Report say that Bon Jovi made the announcement during a show on his Runaway to Paradise Mediterranean cruise, and that the title and its contents are, according to him, inspired by today’s headlines. “It’s an election year, so why not?” he said. “I couldn’t do any worse.” He added that the songs deal with such topics as veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and the recent spell of mass shootings. Saying he’s “very happy with it,” he admitted that it’s a “different record” than fans are used to, especially given the subject of their previous effort.
