Billy Idol premieres first single from new album

Billy Idol is premiering “Can’t Break Me Down”, the lead single from his forthcoming album, “Kings & Queens Of The Undergound.”

Due October 21, Idol’s first project in almost a decade was primarily produced by Trevor Horn, with Greg Kurstin also contributing as a producer to two songs.

Idol will launch a fall European tour in support of the record; the 3-week, 11-show run starts November 5 at the 02 Academy in Birmingham, UK and wraps up in Milan, Italy on November 23 – see tour dates here.

The new album will be issued two weeks after Idol publishes his self-written memoir, "Dancing With Myself", on October 7.

The autobiography delivers a brutally honest account of Idol’s journey to fame – from his early days as frontman of the pioneering UK punk band Generation X to his international solo career.
