Universal Music has a slew of releases scheduled for the end of summer that are included in our Notable Releases: Notes of Interest – Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney, Stryper & more.
Burning Bridges from Bon Jovi will be released by Island Records on August 21st. No other details have been revealed at this time, but it’s likely some sort of compilation since the band’s new album isn’t scheduled until sometime in 2016.
