Three major record labels have been offering Diana an album contract for a number of years now however the breaker in all cases was that she had to agree to do world tour dates which she wouldn't commit to.
However she finally agreed to do UK dates and these will take place late 2020/ early 2021 as the album should be ready by then. That'll be 15 years since her last one.
Mark Ronson is producing a couple of tracks.
Good news for Andy as he will be able to get tickets he didn't for Glastonbury. ............

Well at least she will have no trouble to reach out and touch somebody's hand at the festival.....
She might be 75 years old, but at least she has not turned into the live embarrassment that Madonna now is, as she can still hold a tune, despite being like 77 year old Paul McCartney having the band & backing singers do most of the heavy lifting:
I actually have a lot of respect for her for doing this at her age! Not a fan of hers but seeing her at Glasto would have been quite something. Probably not a headliner most people who hoovered up all the tickets in record time will have been expecting though!
To tie in with her Glasto appearance Diana will be doing a UK Tour of the following venues:
30 June 2020 – First Direct Arena, Leeds 1 July 2020 – M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool 3 July 2020 – Manchester Arena, Manchester 4 July 2020 – The SSE Hydro, Glasgow 6 July 2020 – Arena Birmingham, Birmingham 8 July 2020 – The O2, London
More dates could follow.
Those are very big venues. Seeing as she has been out of the UK public eye for over a decade it will be interesting to see how ticket sales go.
Of those for me Birmingham has the best atmosphere.
Unfortunately it's hardly likely Glastonbury will survive this year.
That is still sometime away, and fingers crossed the UK Government spooked everybody enough on Tuesday sending the public into "Corporal Jones mode" that we don't suffer anywhere near as badly as Italy are suffering right now.
Still "I don't want to start any Blasphemous Rumours but" if Glastonbury Festival is cancelled then you could argue it would be proof that God's got a sick sense of humour" as Ms Ross' debut solo single after leaving the Supremes was called "Reach Out and Touch (Somebody's Hand)" which is most definitely not recommended right now.
