(Classic Rock) Bon Jovi have split with record label Mercury after 32 years - and frontman Jon Bon Jovi has told the whole bitter story in their song Burning Bridges. It's the title track of the band's "fan album," which has come ahead of their next fully-fledged studio release, expected next year.

Burning Bridges include the lyrics "After 30 years of loyalty, they let you dig the grave / Now maybe you can learn to sing or strum along / Well I'll give you half the publishing / You're why I wrote this song."

Bon Jovi tells Billboard: "It fulfills a commitment to Mercury Records. We've parted ways. I f you listen to Burning Bridges, the song, it's clearly spelled out."

He adds: "This hits it right in the head and tells you what happened. Listen to the lyrics. That's that." Read more here.
