Ninety-year-old rock ‘n’ roll legend Chuck Berry is set to release his first new studio album in more than 35 years.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Berry’s album, titled “Chuck,” will be available in 2017.
Jimmy Marsala, a bassist in Berry’s longtime band, suggests the new album took so long to come together because Berry wanted to make sure it lived up to everyone’s expectations. His last studio album was “Rock It” in 1979.
