Billy Idol is back with his first album in eight years today (Tuesday).

Titled Kings and Queens of the Underground, it comes two weeks after the publication of his autobiography, Dancing With Myself. Idol tells us he worked on both project simultaneously, adding that it was a great experience because “both things rubbed off on each other.” The album was produced by Trevor Horn. Idol starts a tour in support of the album on November 5th in Birmingham, England with the U.S. leg set to follow on January 21st in New Orleans.
