New Bon Jovi Album '2020' Set For October 2, Listen To 'Do What You Can' Now

'I am a witness to history'

It was going to be a tour for the ages – Bon Jovi trekking the globe and setting fire to hearts in arenas near and far to support a brand new album for a hopeful 2020.

With that all put on hold, the band was forced to pivot – and they did so with grace and compassion in streamed performances to benefit healthcare heroes on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis.

One beacon of light that was able to shine through, was singer Jon Bon Jovi. In a mere moment of self-reflection while feeding people in need at his JBJ Soul Kitchen in Red Bank, NJ the words that have now become song were born out of a photo and social media post; "If you can’t do what you do, do what you can."

Immediately following the onset of the virus, the events of George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis at the hands of police and the national social justice movement, Jon penned the track "American Reckoning."

"I am a witness to history," says Jon in a press release. "I believe the greatest gift of an artist is the ability to use their voice to speak to issues that move us."

Today, he’s starting to get back to doing what he does – rock. Their new album 2020, originally set for release on May 15 and now including two additional tracks, has officially been given the go-ahead for October 2.

Here’s the full track listing:

“Do What You Can”
“American Reckoning”
“Beautiful Drug”
“Story of Love”
“Let It Rain”
“Lower the Flag”
“Blood in the Water”
“Brothers in Arms”
