David Bowie Hints That He'll Be Releasing "More Music Soon"

The gathering marked Bowie's 50-year music career, while raising money for the Terrence Higgins Trust, a U.K. organization that supports the fight against HIV.

Bowie's message read, "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."

A Bowie rep reportedly confirmed to NME that the note was indeed from the Rock and Roll Hall Famer, but an article focusing on the news apparently has been removed from the magazine's website.

Bowie also alluded to a new album in a message he wrote honoring Columbia Records executive Rob Stringer that was read at the 2014 Music Week Awards this past April.  That note jokingly mentioned that he'd hired Stringer as a "percussionist on my new album this year."
