Before Chuck Berry’s death, it seems that he was still working on his new album. Not sure if they’re still going to finish it without him or not but they probably would. Why? Chuck would probably want the album to go on without him. They would probably release it anyways. Chuck would want the album out for his wife in which he dedicated it to.
We’ll know soon on whether or not the industry will release the new record. Hopefully Chuck recorded enough material that will be good enough for it to be released. They might not release it at all, ya never know ’cause they might feel it can’t be done without him.
We’ll wait and see what they’re planning to do with it, though. I wouldn’t be surprised if they released it anyways in honor of Chuck.
