|Bon Jovi 'Feels Right' On Acoustic Set
Bon Jovi will on Nov. 4 release "This Left Feels Right," featuring acoustic reinterpretations of the band's greatest hits, as well as two new songs. The band rerecorded a number of its hits for the Island set, including "Born To Be My Baby," "Keep the Faith," "It's My Life" and "Wanted Dead or Alive," in acoustic settings with producer Pat Leonard (Madonna, Elton John).
"We went into the studio thinking we were making an acoustic record," frontman Jon Bon Jovi said in a statement. "We had a definite idea of the record we were going to make. But once we began experimenting with the songs and trying out new ideas we created a very different, unique album. We made a complete left turn and took the project down a different road."
The two new songs, "Last Man Standing" and "Thief of Hearts," were written and recorded specifically for "This Left Feels Right," in the same acoustic environment.
The album's roots lie in acoustic performances the group gave on its most recent world tour. As previously reported, the band is considering a DVD of a Japanese unplugged arena show as well as an album or box set of rarities.
