Having just released his newest album, Kings & Queens of the Underground, new wave legend Billy Idol takes you through a quick personalized look at London, a city of special significance for him.

Fans of ‘80s music, new wave in particular, need no introduction to Billy Idol. People all over the world are familiar with the man in large part for classics like “White Wedding”, but he’s not one content to ride on the coattails of his big successes in the ‘80s. Indeed, Idol has kept to making music, and has just released his latest collection of tunes, Kings & Queens of the Underground.
To give listeners a closer look at the album, Idol has filmed several short video episodes chronicling the process of the making of the music. In the latest installment, which you can view below, Idol gives listeners a unique look at the city of London, a city that has come to be a central hub of creativity for him as an artist.
