Bon Jovi told Rolling Stone that they’ll be going “back to rock & roll” on their next album, and today we learned when their return to their roots will go down: Bon Jovi announced today that their next album The Circle will be released on November 10th. First single “We Weren’t Born To Follow”
The Circle find Bon Jovi reteaming with producer John Shanks, who also worked with the band on 2005’s Have A Nice Day and 2007’s Lost Highway. Sambora also told RS that Bon Jovi would set out on tour to promote the album sometime in the Spring of 2010, promising that the ensuing trek is “going to be a big one.”
It's a new version of Ben E. King's "Stand By Me," and Bon Jovi even duets in Farsi with Andy Madadian in the first verse! According to the song's co-producer, Don Was, the song was the result of a conversation he had with Madadian about "whether there was something we could do just to send out a little message of solidarity, remembering the '60s, believing music can change things."
So, the two went to the recording studio and saw Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora, and John Shanks having lunch outside. Was told them what they were doing and Jon Bon Jovie said, "Look, man, if you do it right now we'll do it with you." And so they did.
It's a duet between Bon Jovi and Madadian, who has been living in the U.S. since the Iranian Revolution of 1970. Joining them on the song is Richie Sambora on guitar, Was on bass, Patrick Leonard on keyboards, and Jeff Rothchild on drums.
According to Was, "We just cut it and the video is the session. It took about four hours and just fell into place nicely."
The song is not for sale and Was says it was never meant to even hit the Billboard charts. They created the song to be downloaded and shared by the people of Iran and as Was says, "The whole idea was to get it into Iran and tell them...to carry on, that the world is watching and we're with you."
