Two years after his public announcement to "step away indefinitely" from the Hong Kong entertainment industry due to a sex photo scandal, Edison Chen has broken his silence, speaking exclusively with the Global Times about his plans to return to the showbiz world in full force. Chen also made his first public appearance in Beijing since the scandal, attending the launch last Tuesday of Adidas Originals' new line A039.

"With now as the best timing and me in my best state, I am ready for my come back," Chen said.

According to Chen, he will start recording a new album by the end of the month, with hopes that the first single will be released in time for summer. Taiwanese musicians including rapper MC Hot Dog and possibly Jay Chou, will contribute to the album, according to Chen, differing from his previous hip-hop-styled releases.
