Billy Joel’s last new music was his 1993 album ‘River of Dreams.’

Now, 31 years later, the music legend is putting out new music again.

Billy’s Facebook page now features a post that shows the words “Did I Wait Too Long?” as if written on a chalkboard.

Joel didn’t leave fans hanging for long. He soon let them know via social media that the song is called ‘Turn the Lights Back On’ and a single due for release on February 1.

We Are Ready for New Billy Joel

Showbiz 411 reports,“Did he wait too long? Nope. A new Billy Joel album or even single would be most welcome. It would also line up with his final, 150th show at Madison Square Garden this July.”

The story continued:

This may be a new Billy chapter. He’s been roaming from the Garden and playing dates with Stevie Nicks around the country. He’s starting to do a few with Sting, too. Right now Billy’s in Japan!

The great musicians never stop. The Rolling Stones released their best album in 40 years recently. The Pretenders had a tremendous new set this past fall. Elton John is working on a new album with Brandi Carlile. The hit just keep on coming! Even Justin Timberlake — considerably junior — has a new album on the calendar.

“It’s the first time Billy has ever collaborated with other songwriters. They are Freddy Wexler, Arthur Bacon, and Wayne Hector. (Wexler and Hector are known around town. Arthur Bacon? Hmmmm…)” the story added.

The world is more than ready for some new Billy Joel.

And it’s about time.
