Rock icon BILLY IDOL announced today that 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, the new album will arrive close to the release of IDOL’s highly anticipated self-written autobiography, Dancing With Myself, which as previously announced will be released in the U.S. via Touchstone, an imprint of Simon and Schuster Inc., on October 7.

IDOL recently launched his book campaign with a notable appearance at New York’s Book Expo America and is now on the road in Europe with his band, which includes longtime collaborator and lead guitarist Steve Stevens. The current leg of Idol’s tour continues until July 4 in Luxembourg.

Initial music from the new album will be released in late summer; IDOL’s world tour will continue into 2015.

About BILLY IDOL:

From punk pioneer to global superstar, William Michael Albert Broad, aka BILLY IDOL, has left an indelible mark in popular music and remained a household name for over three decades.  His style, music, and attitude have transcended time and trend.  Born in 1955 in Stanmore, North London, IDOL spent several formative years living on Long Island, NY as a child before returning to the UK and emerging as a central figure of the British punk movement.  As part of the infamous Bromley Contingent and a fan of the Sex Pistols, IDOL was inspired to front the pioneering British punk band Generation X from 1976 until the band’s split in 1981. Determined to break through in America, IDOL hooked up with guitar genius Steve Stevens and a crucial musical partnership was forged. IDOL created some of rock’s most enduring anthems including “White Wedding,” “Dancing With Myself,” “Flesh For Fantasy,” “Hot In the City,” “Eyes Without A Face,” “Rebel Yell,” and “Cradle of Love,” among others.  BILLY IDOL is the original punk rocker who found a way to take that sneering punk attitude into the pop and rock mainstream, carving out songs that have lasted a lifetime.
