Bon Jovi is releasing a special fan album leading up to its overseas fall tour, Billboard has learned.

The band is releasing two new tracks not even one month before the August 21st release of their new album, Burning Bridges.

A spokesperson for Bon Jovi tells Billboard, “Burning Bridges, which will be released August 21st, is an album for fans and will accompany an upcoming international tour. The band is hard at work on their next album, which will see a full-scale release in 2016.”

The first track, We Don’t Run, is written by Jon Bon Jovi and Grammy-winning producer John Shanks. An anthem in the Bon Jovi tradition, the tune features meaty production and a shredding guitar solo by Shanks. Shanks has a long history with the band, having produced What About Now, The Circle, Lost Highway and Have a Nice Day.

The second, Saturday Night Gave Me Sunday Morning, is a happier, more romantic, bright pop song with a hooky chorus featuring the lyrics “Saturday night gave me Sunday morning/ Opened my eyes and it’s a new day dawning/ Think I might have pushed my luck a time or two/ Everything about us is what gets me through.” It’s classic Bon Jovi and sure to inspire a big sing-along on the road.

Credited to Jon Bon Jovi, John Shanks and former guitarist Richie Sambora, the song — released internationally on July 16 — was written previous to Sambora’s departure from the group.

    Jon recently stated that neither he, Tico or David could envision a scenario where Richie could return to the band, after abruptly cancelling out of 80 booked shows. I know Jon’s the boss, but it’s interesting that he chose to speak on behalf of both remaining original members, instead of allowing them to speak for themselves. I saw a video if Phil X doing “Wanted” with them live, and it was pretty damn good vocally, and musically. I prefer Richie’s solo stuff to Bon Jovi personally, and I wish that Jon would acknowledge Hugh as their bass player, and not treat him as a hired hand after all this time.

    And now we are left with photos of just three band members, bummer…

    Bon Jovi isn’t even really a hard rock band are they? Why do they even get press on this site? Unless Jon himself shows up on “That Metal Show”, I wouldn’t even waste the space reporting on these guys.
