New Year's Day music video #THINFS

Bon Jovi's music video for "New Year's Day" has been released on TIDAL. It features a group of men who share a bottle before setting off on a boat. Jon also appears to nod to Phil X at the end of the line "Let's toast to new beginnings, okay".

Watch "New Year's Day" on TIDAL:

As a side note, I'll be away from tomorrow until New Year's Day and I'm not sure what my internet situation will be, so apologies in advance if I'm a little slow to update for the next week.

UPDATE 31/12/16: "New Year's Day" is now up on YouTube. Watch it below or on the BonJoviVEVO channel:

Born Again Tomorrow music video, #THINFS Live from London Palladium out now

Bon Jovi's music video for "Born Again Tomorrow" has been released on TIDAL. Between shots of the band playing in front of a collage of photographs, we see someone's life cycle through their eyes.

Watch "Born Again Tomorrow" on TIDAL:

Bon Jovi's new live album, This House Is Not For Sale (Live from the London Palladium) also came out today. I just listened to it for the first time and really liked it. I love how Jon's voice doesn't seem to have been overdubbed into oblivion. They've also cut out the stories about the songs, but left a lot of the mistakes -- like the false start to "All Hail the King", and the flubbed lyrics -- which is an unexpected move, but one that makes the album feel more "live". (They did remove the false start to "Come On Up To Our House" though.)

Do you like the new album? Would you have preferred a DVD with all the stories included?

UPDATE 20/12/16: Looks like the Live in London bundle, which comes out in January, has Jon's stories/commentary included.

UPDATE 23/12/16: "Born Again Tomorrow" is now on the BonJoviVEVO channel. Watch it below or on YouTube.

John Shanks, who appeared in "Come On Up To Our House", is in this video as well (but unlike everyone else, he didn't get his own shot at the beginning of the video).

The Devil's in the Temple music video #THINFS

Bon Jovi's music video for "The Devil's in the Temple" has now been released on TIDAL. During the TIDAL X: Bon Jovi shows, Jon said that the song is about an unnamed person at the record company. The video depicts a young female singer being harassed by record label executives to change her image, while Jon looks on in disapproval. I would've liked to see the whole band there -- maybe the rest of Bon Jovi accompanying the girl, while Jon sat back and watched -- but I get the message of the video. And there are videos from the album, including some that are still to be released, that the rest of the band is on.

UPDATE 9/12/16: The music video has now been uploaded to the BonJoviVEVO channel.
