Bon Jovi have announced their new album, 'What About Now'.

The legendary 'Livin' On a Prayer' group are set to return with their twelfth album in March, preceded by a new single, 'Because We Can', which is available on iTunes from today (1/7/2013).

The album will also feature the track 'Not Running Anymore', which is used in the soundtrack of new movie 'Stand Up Guys' and has been nominated for Best Original Song at this year's Golden Globe Awards.

The band are also on tour from February in support of the album, starting in the US before coming to Europe later in the summer.

Lead singer Jon Bon Jovi, 50, recently said the key to the band's longevity has been their work ethic.

He said: "The secret of our success is hard work, good luck and being true, and we never disappoint live, so that people will come back. They know they'll get their money's worth. We won't play for 40 minutes then throw a tantrum.

"We're lucky we've got people at our shows from all generations, we've got kids to teenagers to people in their 60s! That's what I always hoped to do, like the Rolling Stones."

you give source a bad name

Obviously I am a stan. I should probably be disgusted at how pop and radio friendly the new song is. But to be honest, I think it's genius marketing. It's fun, positive, and incredibly catchy... So much so that people who wouldn't normally pay attention might if they hear this on the radio. I always wish Richie Sambora would have more opportunities to shine though. Anyway, thought I'd post for the 3 or 4 people who might care.
