No details regarding the cause of death has been announced.

On Saturday, Billy posted an In Loving Memory card of his father on his Whosay account along with the caption, “RIP William Alfred Broad laid to rest today….”

A Condolence Bill Broad Facebook page has been created and is active here.

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.

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