Music legend Chuck Berry‘s recent passing at 90 years of age struck a chord around the world, as he was as synonymous with the phrase ‘rock and roll’ as anyone to ever pick up a guitar.
Prior to his death, Berry had announced plans for a new studio album titled Chuck, and that will indeed be released on June 16. In fact, a song from the record, “Big Boys,” featuring Tom Morello and Nathaniel Rateliff of Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats has been premiered and can be streamed below.
Gary Clark Jr. and Berry’s grandson, Charles Berry III, also appear on the record. Here’s the track listing, which features songs Berry had worked on as far back as 1980:
1. “Wonderful Woman”
2. “Big Boys”
3. “You Go to My Head”
4. “3/4 Time (Enchiladas)”
6. “Lady B. Goode”
7. “She Still Loves You”
8. “Jamaica Moon”
10. “Eyes of Man”
Chuck will be the first studio album of new material for Berry since his 1979 record Rock It, and it can be pre-ordered right now on his official site.
Stay tuned for more — and rest in peace, Chuck.
