Billy Idol released his first single in nearly 7 years called Bitter Taste.
The Single is off of his upcoming EP called The Roadside, which is set to be released on Sept. 17th, and is not the usual Billy Idol sound we are used to.
Idol attributes the new introspective sound to his near fatal motorcycle crash in 1990.
"I think everyone has been feeling more reflective (during the pandemic). So, it seemed quite logical and natural to write something about my motorcycle accident". Idol went on to explain that his 1990 motorcycle accident changed him. "Maybe on that roadside I left behind the irreverent youthful Billy and opened the door for a more attentive father and more sensitive musician."
