RJD2: New Album in 2009

RJD2 aka Ramble John Krohn announced on his MySpace blog that it's a "virtual certainty" he will have a new album in 2009:

It's very near to completion. Once all the business is sorted, I should have an idea of exactly when in 2009. It's got some exciting guests from here and from there.
Not sure if he'll take it in the same direction as 2007's The Third Hand on which he played all the instruments and sang. Personally I hope he gets back on the Dead Ringer/The Horror/Since We Last Spoke route, though when explaining the motivation for Third Hand he said he doesn't like to repeat himself artistically.
