«This year Christmas isn’t right», sings Bon Jovi in his brand new holiday track

No, we are not talking about a 2020′ hit by Dan + Shay ‘Christmas Isn’t Christmas’. Coincidentally, it’s Bon Jovi’s new holiday song with exactly the same title! Bon Jovi has just released his Christmas original track and an accompanying music video. Give it a listen and watch the video below!

The band vocalist, Jon Bon Jovi, introduced ‘Christmas Isn’t Christmas’ as a family song and emphasized «the sentiment that Christmas really isn’t Christmas without YOU which can bring up a lot of memories for people. I also liked to turn it around and know that because of you Christmas IS Christmas.»

Despite being inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, Bon Jovi keep rolling, recording new music and touring the world. Their latest album, simply titled 2020, came out in October 2020 via Island Records.

Moreover, the band’s founding member, guitarist Richie Sambora, has told People magazine that «there’s talking» going on about his return to the band! Last month in an interview on Breeders’ Cup he spoke about the possibility of the reunion:

«I think that we wrote a lot of songs that changed a lot of people’s lives just by letting them have a good time. I know that’s what music did to me … kept me company. And I hope that I can reflect that in what I do. [..] So yeah, it definitely could happen. It’s just a question of when everybody’s ready to go do it. It will be a big, massive kind of undertaking.»

‘Christmas Isn’t Christmas’ Lyrics:

Fancy paper, pretty ribbons
Wrap each present that is new
And the sounds of this good season fills the night
We’ll light a fire, send season’s greetings
We’ll sing a song of Yule
There’s nothing wrong, but this year Christmas isn’t right

Oh, it’s a beautiful day
We’ll give thanks and we’ll pray
For every blessing and the dreams that came true
Oh, it’s a beautiful night
But I can’t wait for first light
When that sky will shine a different kind of blue

Snow still falling, friends are calling
Bringing laughter and good cheer
Wine is flowing and another year’s gone by
Nothing’s changed, but life keeps changing
Some say hello, some say goodbye
It’s the memories that keep me warm tonight

Oh, it’s a beautiful day
We’ll give thanks and we’ll pray
For every blessing and the dreams that came true
Oh, it’s a beautiful night
But I can’t wait for first light
That’s when the sky will shine a different kind of blue
This year, Christmas isn’t Christmas without you

How am I supposed to let you go?
You’re the only thing I’ve ever known
You’re the reason that I keep holding on
Now, who’s strong and who’s afraid?
Tomorrow won’t be yesterday
Tomorrow just can’t be like yesterday
Yeah, yeah

Fancy paper, pretty ribbons
Promise me you’ll come home soon
‘Cause Christmas isn’t Christmas without you
Oh, Christmas isn’t Christmas without you
