From Billboard.com

What kind of conversations has there been among the band members about the induction?

We've been rehearsing the last couple of days. We get together in order to write, record and stay fresh, so it happened the guys were in town the last few days and we're in the studio today finishing these couple of tracks that we're gonna put out next month. So we had a couple of nights to just give each other a hug and high-five and say amen. So it was cool, and I'll see 'em all again today.

So talk about the new songs you mentioned?

I started the process again and didn't have a full album -- maybe five (songs) where usually I have 35. So I picked two that were appropriate. One is called "When We Were Us," which is obviously about the band, a big ol' anthemic (song) and I think a great lyric that tells our story. And the other one is called "Walls," which is obvious what it's about, but because of the crazy world in which we live it's taken a little while to process and put some of it into lyric. So this is just a taste of that kind of thing. I felt like if I give one from column A and one from column B it would be a fair representation of some new material to accompany the forthcoming shows. They'll be out I think the very beginning of January, as soon as everybody comes back from the Christmas break. We're mixing them this weekend.

"The story isn’t over. Bon Jovi is already in rehearsals gearing up for a 2018 tour, and two new songs are ready to be released as part of a re-release of 2016’s No. 1 album, “This House Is Not for Sale.” One song, “Walls,” represents what is going on in the country."

Mystery solved.

It's actually quite common these days. Singers put out a single that's not on original album version, but then re-release the album with that new song to create some new momentum.

Maroon 5 has done that (Moves Like Jagger), OneRepublic has done that (Love Runs Out), Shawn Mendes did it recently (There's Nothing Holding Me Back) and I'm sure many others.

One of the reasons why 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. singles do worse commercially than the lead single (for all artists 95% of the time), is because the later singles aren't new (meaning they're already on the album). Doing a new single with album re-release solve that problem and then can re-boost album sales at the same time.

I don't think that will help much in Bon Jovi case (single-wise they've long been a dead act), but I guess that's what the promotional strategy is.

Thanks for the explanation Walleris.

But it would be only a digital re-release right?

Because a phisical re-release doesn't sound as a good strategy for me.
