Chuck Berry: New Album Update

March 20, 2017

The family of Chuck Berry, the rock 'n' roll frontiersman who passed away on Saturday (18) at the age of 90, have issued a statement about the upcoming release of his CHUCK album. Release of the record, his first studio set since 1979's Rock It, was announced last autumn. The statement reads:

“Since Chuck’s passing on Saturday, the Berry family has received many inquiries from friends, fans and media about the status of his forthcoming album CHUCK, which was originally announced on his 90th birthday, 18 October, 2016.

Chuck Berry“Working to prepare the release of this record in recent months and in fact over the last several years brought Chuck a great sense of joy and satisfaction. While our hearts are very heavy at this time, we know that Chuck had no greater wish than to see this album released to the world, and we know of no better way to celebrate and remember his 90 years of life than through his music.

“For months now plans have been in place, and preparations have been made with our friends at Dualtone Records, to reveal further details and music from the album this week. As a tribute to Chuck Berry, and with gratitude to his fans around the world, we will be following through on those plans in the coming days.

The Chuck Berry Family.”
