Bon Jovi Experimenting With 'Different Elements' On New Album

(Gibson) Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora says the band's new album will feature "different elements," but will still retain a sound readily familiar to long-time fans.

Speaking to Billboard.com, the guitarist said the release, titled What About Now?, marks an "evolution" for the group. "Jon (Bon Jovi) and I, when we get together, it sounds like Bon Jovi," he explained. "It sounds like us. That's basically the way it is what comes out comes out."

He added, however, that the band and co-producer John Shanks tweaked the sonic approach a bit. "[It involved] just basically pushing the production a bit more, or lessening the production so you're a bit more naked," said Sambora.

"It goes both ways on this particular record. We've stripped it down, taken some away and added some different elements." What About Now? is set for release in the spring of 2013. The first single from the album, "Because We Can," comes out January 7. more on this story
