Bon Jovi has released another new song — “Do What You Can” — from their upcoming Bon Jovi 2020 album.
Frontman Jon Bon Jovi said of the song in a press statement, “I am a witness to history. I believe the greatest gift of an artist is the ability to use their voice to speak to issues that move us.”
Jon Bon Jovi debuted “Do What You Can” acoustically during the Jersey4Jersey benefit special. The song’s lyrics examine this particular moment in time: “As we wave outside the window/Older loved ones stay inside/Moms and babies blowing kisses/Maybe saving someone’s life/They had to cancel graduation/It ain’t fair to Skype the prom/Our kids sit home in isolation/TV news is always on.”
The album seems to be filled with topical songs: “American Reckoning,” also from the album addresses the protests in the wake of the death of George Floyd. Bon Jovi 2020 is due out on October 2.
