Punk pioneer Billy Idol will release his first studio album in almost a decade on October 21st. For the album, titled Kings & Queens of the Underground, Idol brought in iconic English record producer Trevor Horn, who has been called “The Man Who Invented the Eighties”, and famed producer Greg Kurstin (Kylie/Kelly Clarkson/P!nk). The record will be released on Idol’s own BFI Records, via Kobalt Label Services.
“Can’t Break Me Down,” the lead single from the LP, which can be pre-ordered now, is available for download on iTunes. The iTunes edition of the album will also exclusively include “Hollywood Promises,” a new song recorded during the album sessions.
Billy Idol has created some of rock’s most enduring anthems including “White Wedding,” “Dancing With Myself,” “Flesh For Fantasy,” “Hot In the City,” “Eyes Without A Face,” “Rebel Yell,” and “Cradle of Love,” among others.
