The Graham Bonnet Band will release the album The Book on November 11.
The singer says the new material is in a “very similar” vein to his work in previous bands such as Rainbow, Alcatrazz and MSG. The package will also include a bonus disc of “re-recorded classics.”
He adds: “I think this is what people want to hear from me – and won’t be disappointed.”
Bonnett also describes the story behind album’s potential first single, Into The Night.
He says: “It’s about a guy who’s been on a long trip, who comes home to find his bags have been packed. He comes home weary and looking forward to going to sleep and seeing his family, but he can’t get in the door – his key doesn’t work.
“He presses the doorbell and eventually his wife answers – though she wasn’t happy to see him.
“She tells him, ‘You’re leaving tomorrow. I have arranged a condominium for you to go and live in – our marriage is over.’”
Watch the promo below.
Bonnet revealed that he’d be working with former Alcatrazz bandmate Jimmy Waldo on the forthcoming release earlier this year. The pair are also planning a series of select reunion shows next year with Waldo’s current band, New England.
Purchasing details for The Book will be made available in due course.
