The set will be preceded by the single "Everyday," described by the band's official Web site as "a big, loud rock song." A 30-second clip of the track is running in advertisements for the German TV station ZDF; it is due to hit U.S. radio outlets later this summer.
A video for "Everyday" was recently shot in Socorro, N.M., with the band performing amid the 27 satellites that make up the Very Large Array (VLA) radio observatory (seen in the film "Contact"). The final aerial shot was jeopardized by a lightning storm, necessitating the evacuation of most of the crew. But the take was completed amid "torrential rain," according to a statement.
"Bounce" is due Sept. 11 in Japan and Sept. 23 internationally. The album is the follow-up to 2000's "Crush," which has sold 1.87 million copies in the U.S. to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The single "It's My Life" hit No. 11 on Billboard's Adult Top 40 chart and No. 33 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Meanwhile, Island is sponsoring a contest to fly a lucky Bon Jovi fan to New York for a four-day, three-night vacation that includes $1,000 in spending money. Fans can enter through Aug. 12 at Island's official Web site.
