An upcoming birthday present for his fans
The upcoming album will be self-titled “Chuck” and will be released through Dualtone Records. The official release date has not been announced, but it is expected for some time next year in 2017. Although the official track listing has not yet been announced, reports indicate the album will contain mostly original songs as opposed to classic Berry pieces. Berry served as the sole producer of the album, and it was produced using various studios throughout St. Louis.
In a released statement, Berry revealed that the upcoming album would also be dedicated to “my beloved Toddy,” referring to his wife of 68 years, Themetta Berry.
