Bon Jovi have released a new single “Unbroken”, which was written for Josh Aronson’s documentary, To Be of Service. The film explores the stories of veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the positive impacts of being paired with a service dog. To Be of Service will screen in theaters around the U.S. in November.
The song “Unbroken” is written from the perspective of a young soldier who is grappling with the emotions and experiences of serving – with lyrics such as: “God of mercy/God of light/Save your children from this life/Hear these words, this humble plea/For I have seen the suffering/And with this prayer I’m hoping/That we can be unbroken.”
Bon Jovi announced via Twitter that all proceeds from downloads of the song will benefit the Patriotic Service Dog Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides service dogs to veterans and first responders in need.

The band recently revealed that they are working on a new album, titled Bon Jovi: 2020. It will be “a real statement record,” said Jon Bon Jovi in an interview with Extra, noting that the new record will delve into an array of current social issues – a contrast to the more personal nature of Bon Jovi’s 2016 record This House Is Not For Sale.
“It’s not political, but it’s very socially conscious, you know, just awareness of so many things going on in the world right now — whether it is the environment or politics, it’s just the wider array of things that need our attention right now.”
“The Amazon’s burning and the hurricanes are flooding and, you know, people need to bond together,” he added. “We’re all in this together at the end of the day.”
