On August 7, 2015 two new Bon Jovi songs "Blind Love" and "A Teardrop To The Sea" from the upcoming fan album "Burning Bridges" was made available to the public.
On the same day, BonJoviVEVO published "Blind Love" lyric video on youtube. These the brand-new songs taken from “fan record” Burning Bridges, are mostly made up of material from previous studio sessions.
All four songs including singles "Saturday Night Gave Me Sunday Morning" and an anthem in the Bon Jovi tradition "We Don't Run" are available for purchase on iTunes
Burning Bridges will be released on August 21, 2015. The "Burning Bridges" release appears to be a collection of outtakes or other tracks, and is not being marketed as a serious new Bon Jovi album.
The band is working on a new album, due out in 2016, and preparing for a September tour of Asia, including their first ever trip to China, as well as a date in Dubai and another in Israel. The 2016 release will be the first full-length album since the departure of founding member and guitarist, Richie Sambora. Sambora left Bon Jovi in 2013,
Bon Jovi brought in guitarist Phil X as a replacement as early as 2011, with X replacing Sambora permanently in 2013. The 2016 album will presumably include Phil's guitar playing. We’ll keep you posted as updates come in.
