ROLLING STONE: More great news for '80s-music fans — Huey Lewis and the News are prepping their first original album in 18 years. Lewis, 68, has not toured in a year due to sudden-onset hearing loss (possibly due to Meniere's), but that seems about to change:
We’re very excited about our new album, and honestly feel that it’s among our best work — we cannot wait to get it out to fans! We’re equally excited to be with BMG, whose reputation as a "music-first" label precedes them admirably.Huey Lewis, in a new statement
