There’s Friday afternoon music biz news, and then there’s Friday afternoon music biz news. The NME is reporting that disgraced glam rock star and convicted child sex offender Gary
Glitter (aka Paul Gadd) is announcing a comeback for 2012 via the Twitter account
Twitter.com/OfficialGlitter.
The purported Glitter tweeted today, “You’ve been waiting for it. I’m
pleased to announce my comeback album will be called “Still Shining”.
Out later in the year!”

 

That Twitter account includes the above photo plus a header
that reads,The Official twitter of Gary
Glitter. Managed and updated by me. The leader. New album #StillShining,
coming soon!
Other tweets said that an autobiography and tour are in the
works, and a string of tweets this morning involved back-and-forth messages
between “Glitter” and various fans. He also posted YouTube links, requests for
photos of memorabilia, and – in one pointed missive – tweeted “#ThingsICantStand people not
letting me put my past behind me and letting me move on with my music. #stillshining #GlitterGour #ff

 

The NME has apparently tried to verify that it is indeed
Glitter or his management but indicated that there has not been any response
yet to the paper’s request for comment.

 

Glitter was convicted in 1999 of child porn possession,
serving four months; later, while living in Vietnam, he was convicted of child
sexual abuse.
