Chuck Berry helped define rock 'n' roll in its early stages. And now he's coming back.
He announced on Tuesday his new album, "Chuck," set to be released in 2017.
Also, Berry turned 90 on Tuesday. Thought we should mention that.
His last album, "Rock It," was released in 1979. His bassist, Jimmy Marsala, said "Chuck" had been in development since then, but it took so long because Berry wanted to make sure it lived up to expectations.
In case the name doesn't ring a bell, maybe "Johnny B. Goode," one of his most famous songs, will.
He was constantly working on stuff all the time, on airplanes, writing lyrics down, always coming up with new ideas.
Don't expect him to go on tour. Spokesman Joe Edwards said Berry is "likely" retired from touring after playing his 200th show in 2014, but "anything can happen."
For reference, this photo is of Berry playing at a concert for his 60th birthday. That was in 1986. That was 30 years ago.
We're not sure many people are alive to contest this claim to royalty.
Even Slash got in on the celebration.
