Former British glam rocker Gary Glitter, who is serving a jail sentence in Vietnam for molesting two girls, plans to return to singing after being released in August.
State-run media reported Glitter as saying he would like to make another record.
The 64-year-old said in an interview with the Cong An Nhan Dan (People's Public Security): 'I have an incomplete album that I want to finish.'
'I have been thinking about the plan during my days in jail.'
Glitter, whose real name is Paul Francis Gadd, was convicted in March 2006 of committing "obscene acts with children."
The incidents involved two Vietnamese girls aged 10 and 11 from the southern coastal city of Vung Tau.
He is also considering moving to Singapore or Hong Kong once he is released, the newspaper said on its website.
He said: 'I am trying to contact my lawyer and friends to see where the best place to live is.'
The singer is in good health although he has a small problem with his hearing, according to the newspaper, run by Vietnam's Public Security Ministry. Le Thanh Kinh, Glitter's attorney, could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
Earlier this year, Hong Kong's South China Morning Post newspaper reported that Glitter did not want to return to Britain because he would be listed on the country's sex offenders' registry.
A Hong Kong Immigration Department spokesman said today that there are no regulations barring convicted sex offenders from entering the territory, but that every entrant is subject to examination on a case-by-case basis.
Glitter's three-year jail sentence in Vietnam was cut by three months for good behaviour during festivities for the Lunar New Year, known as Tet, last year. He is due to complete his sentence in August.
