The Stand & Deliver hitmaker has confirmed reports he's working on his first album in 15 years, and he's dedicating one new song to ex-Adam & The Ants svengali MCLaren, who lost his battle with cancer earlier this month (Apr10).
Ant, real name Stuart Goddard, tells NME.com that the track Who's a Goofy Bunny Then? was written with "surrogate father" MCLaren in mind almost 30 years ago - and the music mogul's passing prompted him to rework the tune.
The song will appear on Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar in Marrying The Gunner's Daughter, which features collaborations with former 3 Colours Red guitarist Chris MCCormack, Marco Pirroni and "a member of Oasis".

Rocker Adam Ant insists former Sex Pistols frontman JOHNNY ROTTEN deserves more credit for kicking off the UK punk movement than rock svengali Malcolm McLaren, despite MCLaren's boasts that he "invented" the genre.
The STAND AND DELIVER star believes punk was essentially a working class phenomenon which was hijacked by the middle classes.
And he claims that, while middle class MCLaren was a true pioneer, it was working class hero Rotten - real name John Lydon - who pushed the movement forward.
He tells London magazine Time Out, "There was a definite element of class tourism.
"I enjoyed Julien Temple's film THE GREAT ROCK 'N' ROLL SWINDLE, where Malcolm MCLaren tells us that he invented punk and used the Pistols as his puppets - but I think it was one of Malcolm's fantasies.
"Malcolm was a great catalyst and deserves credit as an originator but, in John Rotten, he was dealing with a poet.
"John put everything into action. He was an electric presence and completely authentic."
Punk svengali Malcolm McLaren insists the occasion he urinated on SIR Richard Branson was entirely justified, as the Virgin tycoon had been "two-faced".
The rock mogul was in the middle of making Sex Pistols movie THE GREAT ROCK 'N' ROLL SWINDLE with film-maker Julien Temple, but in order to complete the film, he needed more money.
After trying and failing to convince Branson to buy him out, he hit back at the snub by relieving himself all over the floor of his plush houseboat.
He says, "I decided to visit Branson on his boat, which was parked on the Regent's Canal in London, to demand that he buy me out of the Sex Pistols so that I could finish The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle.
"I thought Branson had been two-faced in his dealings with me. So, to register my disrespect, I took out my penis and urinated on his office carpet.
"I'm not sure how he reacted as I immediately took my leave."
