Listen to Bon Jovi’s New Song, “Living Proof,” Below

Bon Jovi released a new song, “Living Proof,” and according to front man Jon Bon Jovi, the song is a return to form.

“‘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.”

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

Jon Bon Jovi will be a mentor this Sunday (May 19) for the season finale of American Idol. Despite a report that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is in negotiations to be the next Idol judge after Katy Perry departs, a spokesperson for Bon Jovi tells 1071 The Boss that the report is false.

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