REMASTERED! Bon Jovi - New Jersey
For three decades, the iconic, world renowned Bon Jovi has steadfastly earned and maintained a stellar reputation as ambassadors of rock ‘n’ roll, performing for more than 37.5 million fans, selling more than 130 million albums and racking up 96 No. 1 chart debuts around the globe. On the heels of yet another record-breaking year in 2013, which included their fifth No. 1 record and the No. 1 worldwide tour, Bon Jovi announces plans for an extensive 30th Anniversary catalog campaign with Island/UMe. The initiative will launch with the release of the seminal album New Jersey in a remastered 2-CD Deluxe Edition. More 30th Anniversary commemorative titles, including newly-compiled collections of studio and live recordings, will also be released this year. Released in September 1988, New Jersey spent four straight weeks at No. 1 in the U.S. and spawned five Top 10 singles (“Bad Medicine;” “Born To Be My Baby;” “I’ll Be There For You;” “Living In Sin;” and “Lay Your Hands On Me,” two of which hit No. 1 (“Bad Medicine” and “I’ll Be There For You”) – the only rock album ever with that many Top 10 hits. The album is multi-platinum in the U.S. and has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.
