The new hardware is called CODE, and it was developed by John's producer T-Bone Burnett along with a team of engineers.

The new LP due to out on July 15, will be packaged in a different fashion to avoid a possible compatibility issues. For that, the album's package will include 2 disc-set, one is the standard audio edition in the form of CD, while the CODE version is being made on DVD. Although, it will be a two-disc set, the price won't be counted as two CD price.

Meanwhile, commenting about the work of the album, Burnett told Billboard.com that he doesn't need to give much direction to John adding that he also got to play a lot of guitars on the record. "I didn't offer much direction, really, but he was certainly open. He encouraged me to play guitar a lot on the record, which I enjoyed," Burnett said.

Beside preparing the release for his new album, John will also hold a long summer tour to promote the album. The tour is set to kick off on July 8 at the Mann Music Center in Philadelphia. On most of the concerts he will be joined by country singer Lucinda Williams.
