"When Stringer asked me if I minded if he took a few Saturdays off from his duties as percussionist on my new album this year in order to catch the Luton Town football club fixtures, how could I refuse?" Thin White Duke says.

David Bowie has hinted that he may release an album of new material in the near future.
As Ultimate Classic Rock notes, the singer hinted at the possibility of new material in a message that he recently sent to Rob Stringer, chairman of Columbia Records.
Stringer was recently honored with a Strat Award in London for his work as a Music Industry Executive. In recognition, Bowie took to Facebook to congratulate the label head, and offered a sly comment about a possible new album in the process:
"When [Stringer] asked me if I minded if he took a few Saturdays off from his duties as percussionist on my new album this year in order to catch the Luton Town football club fixtures, how could I refuse? It's the least I could offer to the man who with his own hands pulled my album to No. 1 throughout the world."
As Ultimate Classic Rock states, the comment is most likely playful banter on Bowie's part. However, after the surprise release of "The Next Day" in 2013, you never know.
