Chicago will unveil an innovative new project called 'NOW' later this summer. Longtime trumpet player Lee Loughane, put the effort together on a mobile recording device called The Rig, while the band is on tour.

The disc will feature 10 tracks, some of which have been released as digital singles over the past several months.

NOW will arrive, appropriately enough, on the 4th of July and will be available in five different formats.  The biggest one will set you back 98 dollars and will include the CD with a six-panel digipak, a full-color lyric book, a t-shirt, a mug and other goodies.  For more information, or to pre-order the new disc, visit the official Chicago website.
