Sir Cliff Richard is moving on with his life following the CPS’s confirmation that they would be taking no further action on the historical sex abuse claims made against him, and has announced the release of a new album.

News Of Just ... Fabulous Rock ‘N’ Roll’ will be out in November, and features Cliff duetting with one of his heroes, Elvis Presley.

The singer has shared his delight about the project, which comes a whopping 58 years since his debut album ‘Move It’ came out.

“Not only do I find it hard to believe that my career has spanned this length of time, but also that I still get the chance to do the thing I love best, and that is to get into a studio,” he says. “My new CD is another dip into an incredible period of our musical history. A happy, creative, and in many ways an innocent time.

“I will always love this music, but more importantly I hope you do too. Rock on!”

The news comes following the CPS’s closure of the historical sex abuse investigation, which spanned two weeks, though no formal charges were ever made.

It all began when South Yorkshire Police raided his Berkshire home in 2014 after allegations were made against him, an event broadcast live by the BBC.

Following the closure of the case earlier this week, he said: “As I have said previously, I’m innocent, so I’m obviously pleased with today’s CPS decision and the speed with which they reached it.

“I hope that it brings this matter to a close.”
