Bowie’s longtime producer has said fans can expect follow up to 2013’s The Next Day ‘soon’.
Tony Visconti, David Bowie’s longtime producer has revealed the legendary singer will release an album of new material ‘soon’, following on from the success of 2013's The Next Day.
Are we getting a new Bowie album soon?
Speaking to CNN the producer said, "There's gonna be another album, definitely ... soon.” Visconti’s comments come just weeks after the announcement of a new greatest hits package which is set for release just before Christmas.
Nothing Has Changed will feature tracks spanning Bowie’s fifty year career, as well as including a new song produced by Visconti, entitled ‘Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)’ which is said to last around eight minutes.
But despite a new album being on the horizon, Visconti played down any suggestion that we could soon see Bowie on tour. "I don't think he's gonna busk in the Tube ... on the Underground. As far as a concert is concerned I have no idea,” said the producer. "He clearly didn't promote The Next Day with a concert and whether he does for the next one I don't know and I couldn't predict that -- it's up to him. It's whatever takes his fancy.”
Visconti also dismissed any suggestions that the 67 year old singer, who had heart surgery in 2004, was unwell, saying "I saw him in the 10-year period when we didn't work together and he was really happy about taking a break. He was in fine health."There were all kinds of rumors flying around and he wasn't upset that people thought he was in ill health ... he said, 'Nah I'm just not inspired and I'll wait till I feel it.'"
Nothing Has Changed will be released on November 17th 2014.
