Bon Jovi hasn't waited very long to plan its next album.
The group's 14th album, "This House Is Not For Sale," is due out in March, just eight months after "Burning Bridges," which Bon Jovi released to fulfill contractual obligations to its former record company.
Jon Bon Jovi told a recent press conference in Kuala Lumpur that the album was recorded at the Power Station Studios in New York, where the group recorded its first album and where Bon Jovi once worked as a studio assistant.
He joked that, "Old habits die hard; I kept cleaning up the place and bringing (the band) coffee)." But, he added, "This record is about our integrity. Integrity matters and we're at a stage in our career where we don't have anything left to prove. Some songs have a little more of the 'chip on my shoulder' sound which is OK for us to have right now."
An exact release date for the album has not been announced, nor have Bon Jovi tour plans for 2016.
