Billy recently teased his first single in years during an on-stage performance.

The music icon revealed to fans that he'd been in the studio cooking up "a little something".

In a video clip posted on TikTok, Billy shared: "I have good news, I have bad news - I’ll give you the bad news first.

"We don’t have anything new to play for you.

"The good news is you don’t have to sit through something you have no idea what it is! Although … we got a little something we’re working on you might hear sometime."

Billy also teased his long-awaited new single via social media.

The 'Uptown Girl' hitmaker had his Facebook header and his canvas on Spotify swapped for the phrase: "Did I wait too long….."
