David Bowie will release another new album “soon,” according to his longtime producer Tony Visconti in an interview with CNN. And if anyone would know it’s Visconti, who has worked with Bowie since 1969 and recently helmed his 2013 comeback album, The Next Day.

“There’s gonna be another album, definitely … soon,” Visconti told CNN — though he didn’t provide a specific timeframe for its release.

Update: Visconti say he was misquoted by CNN.

Asked if Bowie would consider performing live in support of his forthcoming release, Visonti responded, “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. He added, “[Bowie] 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.”

Bowie first teased the forthcoming release of new music back in July, releasing a statement to Terrance Higgins Trust in which he promised “more music soon.”

Then, earlier this month, he announced the November 18th release of a new career-spanning box set entitled, Nothing Has Changed, which includes “Sue (or In A Season Of Crime)”, a new single recorded specifically for the compilation. “Sue” and its accompanying B-side, a new song titled “Tis A Pity She’s A Whore”, will also be released digitally on November 18th and on limited-edition 10-inch for Record Store Day’s Black Friday event (November 28th).

Meanwhile, Visconti along with Woody Woodmansey, an original member of Bowie’s band The Spiders From Mars, are set to embark on a UK tour during which they’ll perform 1970’s The Man Who Sold the World in full.
