Bon Jovi has debuted an official video for the song “New Year's Day.” The video is the latest from their chart-topping studio album This House Is Not For Sale, which hit shelves on Nov. 4 via Island Records/UMG.
The legendary New Jersey rockers unveiled the news with a teaser clip via their official Twitter account on Dec. 20 and premiered the video on Dec. 22 via Tidal. The clip is the 8th in a series of video releases from the studio album and follows last week's release of “Born Again Tomorrow.”
The video opens with a shot of an older man with a bottle in his hand, staring out at the ocean past dilapidated docks as the intro to the pop-rocker thunders behind, propelled by keyboardist David Bryan's soaring synth riff and Tico Torres' powerhouse drums. The video segues to the multi-platinum sellers performing the song down on the docks led by frontman Jon Bon Jovi, who launches into the first verse of this ode to new beginnings, singing, “The midnight bells are ringing/A ship is setting sail/A newborn baby's crying/As lovers say farewell.”
The clip is part of a series of ten videos, which tell the tale behind the creation each of the album's tracks. Fans can check out the full video here or check out a live version of the song above.
Fans still looking for last minute holiday ideas can pick pick up This House Is Not For Sale in standard and deluxe editions or the newly released live edition, which has been re-dubbed "This House Is Not For Sale - Live From London Palladium.” The “Livin' on a Prayer” hitmakers will also be reissuing their entire back catalogue in a new vinyl box set titled "Bon Jovi: The Albums," which drops Feb. 10 via UMG.
