Bon Jovi have released "Because We Can," the lead single from their upcoming album, What about Now?. The single hit iTunes on Monday (January 7), while the album is due March 26.

According to, the new track, written by Richie Sambora, Jon Bon Jovi and Billy Falcon, is "as pop-friendly as anything the group has released."

"Fans of more authentic, grit-songs will need to keep digging," adds the not-so complimentary review.

However, speaking with Billboard, Sambora said fans ought to expect the unexpected from the new LP:

"Jon and I, when we get together, it sounds like Bon Jovi. It sounds like us. That's basically the way it is . . . what comes out comes out."

"It goes both ways on this particular record. We've stripped it down, taken some away and added some different elements."
