The Thin White Duke has stopped being quite so cryptic and promised new music "soon".
Appearing at a charity celebration of 50 Years Of Bowie's Music in London earlier this week, the 67-year-old icon delivered the following message:
"This city is even better than the one you were in last year, so remember to dance, dance, dance. And then sit down for a minute, knit something, then get up and run all over the place. Do it. Love on ya. More music soon. David"
It follows his April "joke" during a message congratulating Columbia Record's Rob Stringer on an industry award:
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.
While the April comment seems quite tongue-in-cheek, the latest statement – albeit brief – seems like an unprompted promise and strongly suggests the follow-up to last year's comeback The Next Day – or some form of new material at least – will be with us in the not too distant future.
