David Bowie - David Bowie hints at new album

David Bowie has hinted that he is working on a new record.

The 'Starman' hitmaker has seemingly let slip he is making a ''new album this year'' during a congratulatory message to Columbia Records US chairman, Rob Stringer, who was honoured with the prestigious Strat Award at the Music Awards in London on Thursday (24.04.14).

In the tongue-in-cheek message to his record label boss, David joked: ''When he asked me if I minded if he took a few Saturdays off from his duties as percussionist on my new album this year in order to catch the Luton Town football club fixtures, how could I refuse? It's the least I could offer to the man who with his own hands pulled my album to Number One throughout the world.''

According to NME.com, representatives for David are yet to comment and while it's likely his comments were made in jest, fans have been speculating as to whether the singer is secretly recording new material.

In 2013 David Bowie returned to the charts with 'The Next Day', his first album in 10 years, and the album's producer Tony Visconti revealed that that there are two or three ''astounding'' tracks left over from the sessions for the LP.
