Chicago has a new album on the way – and is debuting the title track to their 36th studio effort, "Now: Chicago XXXVI," on

Keyboardist and singer Robert Lamm says the band added the word "Now" to their album's Roman-numeral title to emphasize that it's current music. Lamm explains that many people just "assume that what Chicago does is all what you hear on classic hits radio, or that Chicago is some dinosaur-like presence on the tour circuit," and they "wanted to kind of change that perception." Chicago's "Now" will be available on July 8th.

Chicago is also hitting the tour circuit this summer. The group will launch a European trek in Paris on June 26th. They'll follow with a co-headlining run with REO Speedwagon starting in Concord, California on July 31st.
