Iconic, Grammy Award-winning superstar band, Bon Jovi makes a massive return with “This House is Not for Sale,” the title-track from their upcoming new album This House Is Not For Sale, slated for release on October 21st in partnership with Island/UMG. The single and video is available today (Aug 12th) at all digital partners.
his House Is Not For Sale is Bon Jovi’s 14th studio album since their 1984 self-titled debut. Earlier this summer, the band (Jon Bon Jovi, David Bryan, Tico Torres, Hugh McDonald, Phil X) tweeted a photo from inside the studio announcing simply, “The album is done.” It reunites the band with Grammy Award-winning producer John Shanks, who began working with the band in 2005, for the RIAA platinum Have A Nice Day album, which entered the charts at #1 in 15 countries worldwide.
This will be their first major release since What About Now (2013), which was the band’s third consecutive multi-platinum album to enter Soundscan at #1 (following Lost Highway in 2007, and The Circle in 2009).
The album will be the first complete album without original guitarist Richie Sambora who abruptly quit during their Because We Can Tour in 2013. Last year’s Burning Bridges contractual obligation album featured a song co-written by Sambora with guitar work done by producer John Shanks. Triumph guitarist Phil X, who took over for Sambora, is featured on this album.
After splitting from Universal Music Group (UMG) last year, the band returns to Island Records. They spent much of their career at Mercury Records, part of UMG, but reportedly left due to differences, but now returns.
