Billy Idol is coming back to all you peroxide-haired loving fans!
After nine years of taking a break from the music world, Idol is getting ready to make a comeback, or maybe we shouldn’t call it that since he has been known to take extended periods of leave from the music universe.
The new record will be the rock icon’s eighth album and has been confirmed to be produced by Trevor Horn. The yet-to-be-titled album is set to be released in October, while the lead single from it will reportedly be released “later this summer.” No specific dates, or even month, has been confirmed yet.
Idol’s last record was 2005’s Devil’s Playground. Sticking with the trend of long periods of quiet between records, Devil’s Playground was released 12 years after 1993’s Cyberpunk.
Coincidentally, or maybe not, the album is slated to come out around the same time that Idol’s memoirs, Dancing With Myself, is set to be released [October 17].
Guess it’s time to bleach our hair and get the leather outfits out of the attic.
