The actress Susan Sarandon has revealed that she used to date David Bowie.

She unveiled news of their love affair in a new interview with The Daily Beast, calling her former lover "extraordinary".

"He's worth idolising. He’s extraordinary," she said. "That was a really interesting period. I wasn't supposed to have kids, and I'm the oldest of nine and had mothered all of them, so I wasn't ever in a mode to where I was looking to settle down and raise a family, so that definitely changes the gene pool you're dipping into. But Bowie's just a really interesting person, and so bright. He's a talent, and a painter, and… he's great."

David Bowie recently confirmed[/url] that he is working on new music, saying it will be released "soon". The elusive artist issued a statement to be read at a recent charity event at the 12 Bar in London, which was held to celebrate 50 years of Bowie's music and raise money for the Terrance Higgins Trust. The statement promised "more music".

David Bowie released his last album, 'The Next Day', in 2013. His 24th studio album, it went to Number One in the Official Albums Chart and was a critical and commercial success – nominated for the Mercury Prize, Best Rock Album at the Grammy Awards and British Album of the Year at the Brit Awards.
