Idol, purveyor of such 1980s radio mainstays as "White Wedding,""Rebel Yell," and "Mony Mony," has already kicked off a tour to promote "Devil's Playground."

"I'd like to add to the body of work that I've done. I'm not exactly dead, and I love rock and roll," Idol said. "I'd love to have a hit record, but I'm not too worried about the charts -- this is all about adding to my work."

The snarling blond singer, born William Broad, will celebrate his 50th birthday later this year.

"Being in the throes of putting out a new album seemed the best way to celebrate it.

"Devil's Playground is my birthday card to myself," he said.
