Billy Idol will be doing a whole lot of dancing with himself come this fall. The ex-Generation X member has already announced the release of his autobiography, the aptly titled Dancing With Myself. Now he’s announced a new studio LP, his first original material in almost 10 years (not that anyone really remembers 2005’s Devil’s Playground). The as-yet-untitled record doesn’t have an official release date, but it’s expected to hit stores sometime around Oct. 7, when Idol’s book is due via the Simon & Schuster imprint Touchston. A new single should be out at some point this summer.
