CHUCK BERRY’S family have announced a statement regarding the release of his final album.
A record that he’d worked on over the course of the latter stages of his life before his passing at the age of 90, his closest relatives have claimed that the body of work known as CHUCK will most definitely see the light of day.
Speaking via his official Facebook account, they stated that:
“Since Chuck’s passing on Saturday, the Berry family has received many inquiries from friends, fans and media about the status of his forthcoming album CHUCK, which was originally announced on his 90th birthday, October 18, 2016.
Working to prepare the release of this record in recent months and in fact over the last several years brought Chuck a great sense of joy and satisfaction. While our hearts are very heavy at this time, we know that Chuck had no greater wish than to see this album released to the world, and we know of no better way to celebrate and remember his 90 years of life than through his music.
For months now plans have been in place, and preparations have been made with our friends at Dualtone Records, to reveal further details and music from the album this week. As a tribute to Chuck Berry, and with gratitude to his fans around the world, we will be following through on those plans in the coming days.”
Further release details are expected to emerge in the near future.
