We all knew Will had been in the studio making new music, but now he's actually given us a date to look forward to. Exciting!

Fresh Prince of Bel Air star Will achieved worldwide fame with Jazzy in the late 1980s with their second album He's the DJ, I'm the Rapper, and they also treated us the ever so popular 'Summertime' hit in 1991 too.

Will, who has recently recorded 30 new songs, told Zane Lowe on the Beats 1 radio show that there are "six or seven [tracks] that I really, really like, that I'm trying to get the ideas to come out right. I'm shaking the rust off, knocking the dust off."

The Hollywood actor and producer admitted he was "terrified" about the prospect of returning to music, but said a tour with Jazzy was "pretty certain".

In August, Will said he was "DYIN' to get back on stage!" as he hung out with Drake and Kanye West, both of whom he has recorded new music with.

We SO cannot wait to see Will live in action and to hear new music!
