Iconic Band BOSTON to release LIFE, LOVE & HOPE this December...

Written by

This news item was offline for a few hours earlier this evening while I figured out what to do with it. iTunes pre-orders were up, and are now down.

On December 3, Frontiers Records will release LIFE, LOVE & HOPE, the sixth studio album by iconic rockers, BOSTON - an record more than a decade in-the-making. Assembled by BOSTON founder Tom Scholz, the new album features vocals from the late Brad Delp, Tommy DeCarlo, Kimberley Dahme, David Victor, and songwriter Scholz himself.

"These are songs from the heart, each of them taking many months of effort to write, arrange, perform and record, always up to the demands of BOSTON's harshest critic, me. They have all been meticulously recorded to analog tape on the same machines and equipment used for BOSTON's hits for the past 35 years. I intentionally stayed close to the early BOSTON style on some of the songs, even using the same amps and instruments; on others I let my imagination run wild,"" Tom Scholz

The Tracklisting for LIFE, LOVE & HOPE is as follows:

  1. bostoncoverHeaven on Earth
  2. Didn't Mean to Fall in Love
  3. Last Day of School
  4. Sail Away
  5. Life, Love & Hope
  6. If You Were in Love
  7. Someday
  8. Love Got Away
  9. Someone (2.0)
  10. You Gave Up on Love (2.0)
  11. The Way You Look Tonight

You can pre-order the new album on iTunes right now and receive the new single, "Heaven on Earth" as an instant download (Nope: Pre-Orders have mysteriously been taken down, just as this article was for a few hours earlier this evening)
