The album is expected to address issues affecting the society, including gun control, politics, and the predicament of veterans who have PTSD.

The "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead" singer also had his fist on his chin, which completed the pensive vibe he was going for.

As it turned out, the inspiration for the cover was from a 1962 image of JFK, according to the band's website.

Michael Ochs took the original JFK image in August of 1962, which the band claimed showed the president as he had a moment of reflection "both literally and figuratively upon a crowd in California."

According to USA Today, the frontman explained that when he saw the image, he wondered what the president had been thinking.

Eventually, his curiosity had led him to ask celebrity photographer Clay McBride to capture the replica as the cover of 'Bon Jovi 2020.'

The site also mentioned that Clay is a New York City-based photographer who has had the opportunity to capture portraits of several celebrities including LeBron James, Allen Iverson, Norah Jones, and Kid Rock.

The choice of the JFK-inspired image seemed to go right with the 57-year-old's plan to have more "socially conscious" themes on the new album.

The site added that the Grammy Award-winning rock band's album would also have a track dedicated to talking about the meaning of family and parenthood. Succinctly put, the lead singer said that "it encompasses life, love, and loss."

The album, which would drop on May 15, would be the first Bon Jovi album to feature Jon Bon Jovi without other members of the since their eponymous 1984 debut.

Regardless of that, the Bon Jovi "2020" album cover would be the band's first studio album since they dropped "This House Is Not for Sale," in 2016.

Fans are excited to hear what Bon Jovi has to offer on this new project.
