Chuck Berry’s first new album in 38 years
The final studio album of Chuck Berry is all set to be released on June 16. The album, titled Chuck, was announced in October, five months before the rock pioneer’s death on Saturday, at the age of 90. With the help of his family, he completed his first new album since 1979’s Rock It. The album’s first single “Big Boys,” featuring Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Nathaniel Rateliff, was released on Wednesday by the estate. The album consists of material recorded between 1991 and 2014, and is full of music that he came up with during the 50s – sped-up blues, double-stringed-guitar breaks and heavy wordplay. The new song “Lady B Goode” is a sequel to “Johnny B Goode,” and “Jamaica Moon” is a rewrite of “Havana Moon.” In 2001, Berry said he was re-releasing the song because he felt “Havana Moon” wasn’t a hit due to “Fidel Castro, the whole communist-Cuba thing.” The album is also uncharacteristically reflective for Berry. In a statement last year, he dedicated Chuck to Themetta Berry, his wife of 68 years - “My darlin’, I’m growing old! I’ve worked on this record for a long time. Now I can hang up my shoes!” he sings about her on the rollicking “Wonderful Woman.”
