David Bowie's producer Tony Visconti has confirmed rumours the reclusive rock star is planning to release another new album.

Visconti, who worked on Bowie's 2013 comeback record The Next Day, has stated there will "definitely" be a new release from the star "soon".

He also suggested Bowie may even break his self-imposed live exile for a promotional concert.

The news comes after Bowie issued a statement in July which included the line, "More music soon".

Visconti told CNN: "There's gonna be another album, definitely ... soon ... I don't think he's gonna busk in the Tube ... on the (London) Underground. 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."

Meanwhile the Bowie retrospective exhibit, David Bowie is?, opens on September 23 at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art. The show travels to Melbourne's Australian Centre For The Moving Image from July next year.
