Bon Jovi Announces New Single, ‘Living Proof’

Bon Jovi will release the second single from their forthcoming album, “Forever,” this Friday, the band announced.

The song, “Living Proof,” harkens back to the anthemic songs the band delivered in the ’80s, complete with the return of the talk box Bon Jovi utilized for “Livin’ on a Prayer.”

“‘Living Proof,’ the next single off the album, we bring back the talk box, the idea based on Peter Frampton and Joe Walsh and our using it first on ‘Livin’ on a Prayer,'” Jon shares, referring to Frampton’s use of the guitar gadget on “Do You Feel Like We Do” and “Show Me The Way,” and Walsh’s on “Rocky Mountain Way.”

Jon then quotes the lyrics, sharing, “this family tree’s got nothing left to prove now/ me and you are the living proof.”

He adds, “[T]his is a big old rock song just the way you like it.” 

Forever, Bon Jovi’s first album in four years, will be released June 7. It is available for preorder now. 

Bon Jovi will be holding pizza parties to give fans a first listen to the album, much like the band did back in the day when they were recording 1986’s Slippery When Wet . Locals were invited to a pizza place by the studio, and their feedback determined which songs made the cut for the album.

The first party will take place in Los Angeles.
