ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Rock n’ roll legend and Blueberry Hill icon Chuck Berry is celebrating his 90th birthday in rock-star fashion — he announced a new album.
According to Rolling Stone, the new album, titled “Chuck,” “is stocked with new, original songs written, recorded and produced by the rock legend” and dedicated to his wife of 68 years, Themetta Berry.
The new album will be the first Berry has released in 38 years. His last album was “Rock It,” released in 1979.
Chuck Berry was born October 18, 1926. His son, Charles Berry Jr., says the songs on the album “cover the spectrum from hard driving rockers to soulful thought provoking time capsules of a life’s work.”
“Chuck” was recorded right here in St Louis. It will be released in 2017.
