(September 14, 2009 – New York, NY) 2009 has turned into a landmark year like no other for legendary Island Records group Bon Jovi, as the band launches their new single, “We Weren’t Born To Follow,” an upbeat positive anthem which premiered on radio Tuesday, August 18th – and has blown up as Bon Jovi’s fastest moving single at HOT AC radio in their 25 year history “We Weren’t Born To Follow” is the first single pick from the band’s new studio album, THE CIRCLE, in stores November 10th.
“We Weren’t Born To Follow” was written (and co-produced) by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, and was produced by John Shanks, who worked with Bon Jovi on their last two albums, Have A Nice Day (2005), which featured the Grammy winning single, “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” and Lost Highway (2007), which debuted at #1 on the Soundscan charts in the U.S. and around the world.
The resulting “Lost Highway World Tour” – which famously started with 10 triumphant nights in New Jersey and came to a close with an historic free concert in New York City’s Central Park and two sold-out nights at Madison Square Garden – was ranked as 2008’s #1 top-selling tour around the world according to Billboard.
