According to an interview with Gary Graff from Billboard, Bon Jovi's new album What About Now? marks a musical "evolution" for the band, but not to the point that might be off-putting to group's worldwide legion of fans.
Richie Sambora tells Billboard that, "Jon (Bon Jovi) and I, when we get together it sounds like Bon Jovi. It sounds like us. That's basically the way it is and what comes out comes out."
But for What About Now?, he says the band and co-producer John Shanks focused on dynamics, and "just basically pushing the production a bit more or lessening the production so you're a bit more naked. It goes both ways on this particular record. We've stripped it down, taken some away and added some different elements."
Meanwhile, Sambora says the album's first single, 'Because We Can', which dropped January 7th, is indicative of the album's upbeat tone to the album. "The lyrics are very positive - obviously 'Because We Can,' 'What About Now?,' it's all empowering and that's what we were trying to get to. We were trying to get some positive lyrics. That's kind of where we landed."
