EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!
It was announced today that Haruki Murakami will publish a new short story collection almost exactly a year after Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki hit the bookstores. The collection, titled Onna no inai otokotachi ("Men Without Women"? "Womenless Men"?  The site ajw.asahi.com gives the title as the somewhat awkward "Men Who Do Not Have Girlfriends"), consists of five or six (depending on the source) stories, all but one of which have previously been published.

Here is the list of six stories, based on information provided in the sankei.jp article:

収録するのは、書き下ろしの表題作と、総合誌「文芸春秋」に掲載した「ドライブ・マイ・カー」「イエスタデイ」「独立器官」「木野」、文芸雑誌「MONKEY」(スイッチ・パブリッシング)に発表した「シェエラザード」の計6編。
(For readers who don't read Japanese, the stories are: 1) the previously unpublished title story, 2) "Drive My Car," 3)"Yesterday," 4) "Independent Organ" [?], 5) "Kino," all of which have appeared in Bungei Shunju and 6) "Scheherezade," which appeared in Monkey.

Here is a link to the ajw.asahi.com article article in English (which mentions only five stories). 

The book can already be ordered on amazon.co.jp and is already listed as a "Number 1 bestseller"!
