Producer Tony Visconti verifies the pop singer is planning to release new music soon.

Last year, David Bowie returned to the music spotlight after a decade absence with his "The Next Day" album.  And back in July, Bowie put rumors that this was a one-off comeback to rest by revealing he was working on another brand new album. 

The statement was posted in the middle of July this year, saying “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."

His "The Next Day" album caught fans off guard due to the secrecy behind releasing it before fans even knew it had hit the market, with long-time collaborator Tony Visconti assuming production duties. The album arrived at No. 1 in 15 countries including the U.K. In the U.S., it opened at No. 2, his highest chart debut there.

Now, in an interview with CNN today, Visconti announced that the pop singer is planning to release new music soon.  "There's gonna be another album, definitely...soon," Visconti said, noting that in no way should that news signal any fan excitement about Bowie's return to the touring circuit. "I don't think he's gonna busk in the Tube," he said. "As far as a concert is concerned, I have no idea."

"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 rumors that have been circulating over the years on Bowie's declining health, who had heart surgery in 2004, was unwell. "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."

No official date on when the new album will be available, but a Bowie greatest hits comp featuring a brand-new song -- "Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)," produced by Visconti -- will come out in November.
