Chuck Berry Turns 90 and Will Release First Album In 35 Years

Chuck Berry, one of the pioneering artists in all of rock music, turns 90 today and to prove that its 90-years-young, he has announced a brand new studio album.

Chuck, out next year via Dualtone, is Berry’s first studio album since 1979’s Rock It.

While you would think that Berry would just rest on all of his accolades in his later years, he explained why he went back in the studio. “This record is dedicated to my beloved Toddy [wife of 68 years, Themetta Berry]. My darlin’ I’m growing old! I’ve worked on this record for a long time. Now I can hang up my shoes!”

Plus, to make this record even more amazing, Berry not only recorded the album but also wrote the songs and produced himself.

Berry’s band includes son Charles Berry, Jr., daughter Ingrid Berry, Jimmy Marsala, who has been with Chuck for over forty years, Robert Lohr and Keith Robinson.

Stay tuned for more information on Chuck when it becomes available.
