SIR Cliff Richard is to release his 101st album.

The 75-year-old singer - who was recently cleared of sex abuse allegations - will drop 'Just... Fabulous Rock 'n' Roll', which will feature his versions of several classic tracks including 'Roll Over Beethoven', 'Great Balls of Fire', 'Sweet Little Sixteen' and his own debut single 'Move It'.

The record will be released on November 11 and also feature Cliff's duet with late music legend Elvis Presley on 'Blue Suede Shoes'.

Cliff - whose last studio album was 'The Fabulous Rock 'n' Roll Songbook' in 2013 - admitted he was releasing the new record in an "innocent time" - which comes after a court case against him over sex abuse allegations, which he had been battling for over two years, was thrown out earlier this year.

He said: "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!

"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 album, recorded in the Blackbird studio in Nashville, Tennessee, will be released as standard and deluxe CD and on vinyl LP.

This comes after the star admitted he was "pleased" to have been cleared of all sex abuse allegations.

Cliff - who has never been charged or arrested - said: "As I have said previously, I'm innocent, so I'm obviously pleased with today's decision.

"I hope it brings this matter to a close."
