A posthumous Chuck Berry album named 'Chuck' will be released on June 16th.

The rock 'n' roll icon passed away at the weekend, leaving behind a formidable legacy that set the bedrock for pop culture as we know it.

Chuck Berry had one final trick up his sleeve, though: a new album named 'Chuck'.

“Working to prepare the release of this record in recent months and in fact over the last several years brought him a great sense of joy and satisfaction,” the Berry family said in a statement posted to Facebook earlier this week. “While our hearts are very heavy at this time, we know that he had no greater wish than to see this album released to the world, and we know of no better way to celebrate and remember his 90 years of life than through his music.

'Chuck' will be released on June 16th, with new cut 'Big Boys' online now. Tune in now.

'Chuck' tracklisting:

‘Wonderful Woman’
‘Big Boys’
‘You Go To My Head’
‘3/4 Time (Enchiladas)’
‘Lady B. Goode’
‘She Still Loves You’
‘Jamaica Moon’
‘Eyes Of Man’
