The news that all Bowie-followers have been waiting for - David Bowie has promised fans that 'new music is coming soon', after making another surprise 'speech' at a charity event. 

Earlier this week, a charity event to celebrate 50 years of Bowie's music took place in London, when fansite DavidBowieNews report that the Thin White Duke issued the following message:

"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"

The elusive icon, who has made very few public appearances and done absolutely no press in recent years, took 10 years in between 2003's Reality and last year's astounding surprise comeback album, The Next Day, so it looks like the wait between records will be a much shorter one this time around. 

Fans hope for a tour, and this latest news is likely to spark rumours of a Glastonbury appearance in 2015 - but we strongly doubt it. Just having Bowie making music is enough.
