Recorded in a church in Nashville, it marks the band’s return ahead of next year’s 40th anniversary year. Their first new music since the album ‘2020’….. in 2020.
“Hey Everybody, I wrote a song two years ago called Christmas Isn’t Christmas. It was a tough day in the house, my dad and my mom were both taken ill. And I wrote this as a gift to my parents and my children. The gift was Christmas bringing everyone together. And while we weren’t all together, we could only be there in our memories and in our thoughts and in our prayers. When we shot the video and we started conversing about it, we realised there’s also great, sunny side – Christmas Isn’t Christmas with you, unless you’re here with me. So we can lighten the mood too. I hope you like it as much as we do.” Jon Bon Jovi
They achieved widespread success with their third studio album, “Slippery When Wet” (1986), which featured hit singles like “Livin’ on a Prayer,” “You Give Love a Bad Name,” and “Wanted Dead or Alive.” These songs not only topped the charts but also became anthems of the 1980s rock era.
