Three time Grammy nominee Billy Idol has announced he will release his first new album in almost a decade this October.
The album will come out on Idol’s own BFI Records, via Kobalt Label Services. Produced by Trevor Horn (Yes, Rod Stewart), the new album will arrive close to the release of Idol’s highly anticipated self-written autobiography, “Dancing With Myself,” which will be released worldwide in October. The track of the same name was his first chart hit, first released by his former band Generation X in 1981.
The forthcoming release will be Idol’s first album since “Happy Holidays” in 2006 and his first of original material since “Devil’s Playground” in 2005.
Currently on the road in Europe with his band, which includes long-time collaborator and lead guitarist Steve Stevens, new music from the album will be released in late summer.
