Huey Lewis & The News have signed a new deal with record label BMG to record their first album of new songs since 2001’s Plan B.
Lewis said 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!” Lewis said in a statement. “We’re equally excited to be with BMG, whose reputation as a ‘music-first’ label precedes them admirably.”
Less than a year ago, Lewis cancelled a 40-date date after he experienced sudden hearing loss. At the time, he told the US Today Show “I’m still hoping I’m gonna get better. They say a positive attitude is important.”
Doctors believe that he is suffering from Meniere’s, which causes severe disorientation, feelings of intense vertigo and hearing loss.
The new album is due out before the end of the year.
