Billy Idol added to BBC Radio 2 Playlist
Billy Idol’s latest single ‘Save Me Now’ has been added to the BBC Radio 2 Playlist and will be on rotation from this Saturday (21st March).
‘Save Me Know’ is the second single from Idol’s latest album ‘The Kings & Queens of the Underground’, his first new album in almost a decade. The album was primarily produced by Trevor Horn with Greg Kurstin also contributing as a producer to two songs, including the anthemic lead single, ‘Can’t Break Me Down’. The artwork was designed by street artist and graphic designer Shepard Fairey.
From punk pioneer to global superstar, William Michael Albert Broad, aka BILLY IDOL, has left an indelible mark on popular music and remained a household name for over three decades. His style, music, and attitude have transcended time and trend. Born in 1955 in Stanmore, North London, Idol was a central figure of the British punk movement. As part of the infamous Bromley Contingent, Idol fronted the pioneering punk band Generation X from 1976 until the band’s split in 1981. Determined to break through in America, Idol hooked up with guitar genius Steve Stevens and a legendary musical partnership was forged. Idol has created some of rock’s most enduring anthems including White Wedding, Dancing With Myself, Hot In the City, Eyes Without A Face and Rebel Yell. Billy Idol is the original punk rocker who found a way to take that sneering punk attitude into the pop and rock mainstream, carving out songs that have lasted a lifetime.
