Robert Fripp Denies Leaking David Bowie Album Secret

(Classic Rock) Robert Fripp has explained he couldn't have leaked news of David Bowie's new album because he wasn't involved in the project at any stage.

Bowie shocked fans on January 8 when he announced the imminent release of The Next Day, his first work in a decade. Producer Tony Visconti later discussed the challenges of keeping the record a secret, saying the only breach of secrecy had come when Fripp mentioned it in his online diary.

But the King Crimson mastermind, who worked with Bowie in the late 1970s, had never been consulted over The Next Day and his diary comment was related to a dream he'd had.

Responding to yesterday's Classic Rock story, Fripp says: "I haven't spoken to David for quite a while, and I wasn't approached for the new album. Not sure whether Tony thought I had been, but nothing ever came to me." He had more to say and read his original comments and his explanation for them.
