Hear Previously Unreleased ‘Now and Forever’ from Bon Jovi’s Expanded ‘New Jersey’

If you just can’t wait until July to hear what Bon Jovi has in store for fans with the newly remastered and expanded version of its 1988 ‘New Jersey’ LP, good news — you can check out one song, the previously unreleased ‘Now and Forever,’ right now.

As we previously reported, the deluxe ‘New Jersey’ is part of a broader 30th anniversary celebration for the band, and comes in a variety of configurations that all add an assortment of bonus content to the album. The group reached into the vault for a 13-track bonus disc of demos from early sessions for the record, including ‘Now and Forever,’ a ballad that’s been floating around collectors’ circles for years — albeit in decidedly more lo-fi form than it’s taken on here. You can hear it via the embed at the top of this post, courtesy of Yahoo Music.

Meanwhile, USA Today is offering a premiere of the previously unreleased track ‘Judgment Day,’ also culled from the demo disc; you can check that out here.

This new ‘New Jersey’ is due in stores on July 1, and offers what should be a sufficiently comprehensive look at an album that went to No. 1 after its initial September 1988 release, selling more than seven million copies to date. Fans who want more than music can look for the deluxe and super deluxe versions, which add a DVD featuring videos and a documentary as well as a book of photos and behind-the-scenes commentary about the making and history of the album.

Bon Jovi reportedly has more in store for its 30th anniversary, including “new collections of studio and live recordings”; further announcements can presumably be expected soon.
