New Album Updates
Friday, November 01, 2013

The new BOSTON album Life, Love & Hope has been available for preorder on Amazon.com for a few weeks already; now it's available to preorder on iTunes.

The first single Heaven on Earth is also available to purchase. The Canadian release has a special bonus.  As was posted on Facebook and Twitter, The Orchard has a listing with a version of the album due for release the same day as the US release December 3, but with a bonus track. It wasn't Te Quiero Mia, which is the Best Buy bonus track, but O Canada. There had been no announcement made previously regarding any other versions of the album or other bonus tracks. The listing on the Canadian iTunes store shows O Canada as the 12th track on the album, running at a length of 1:28.

BOSTON had performed O Canada - Canada's national anthem - during their stops in Rama, Belleville and London, Ontario last year.

For those who love vinyl, SoundStageDirect is taking preorders for the album in 180g Audiophile Virgin Vinyl on 2 LPs. This release is even more interesting as it contains both bonus tracks mentioned, and it's a limited edition of 1,000!

Here is the track listing for the vinyl release:
LP 1
1. Heaven On Earth
2. Didnt Mean To Fall In Love
3. Last Day Of School
4. Sail Away

BREAKING NEWS from Tom Scholz' basement
Sunday, October 13, 2013

The following is the official announcement regarding the new album:

More than 10 years in the making, BOSTON's new studio album, "Life, Love & Hope" is ready for release! Finally emerging from his Hideaway Studio II, Tom Scholz says, "These are songs from the heart, each of them taking many months of effort to write, arrange, perform and record, always up to the demands of BOSTON's harshest critic, me. They have all been meticulously recorded to analogue tape on the same machines and equipment used for BOSTON's hits for the past 35 years."

Available on December 3 on Frontiers Records, this album includes lead vocals from Brad Delp, Tommy DeCarlo, Kimberley Dahme, David Victor, and Tom Scholz, and features tracks with the classic BOSTON sound, as well as the latest in the evolution of Scholz' musical artistry. "I intentionally stayed close to the early BOSTON style on some of the songs, even using the same amps and instruments; on others I let my imagination run wild," says Tom.

All the tracks have the characteristic BOSTON trademark guitars, harmonies, and immaculately-crafted sound. Tom worked very hard to fulfill the expectations of BOSTON fans new and old, and has created a diverse yet cohesive album that truly has something for everyone.
