Ce n'est pas une bonne nouvelle

Let's pretend that a friend of yours just told you something that's sad or that will change your plans, putting them in quite a mess. In French, I would say "Ce n'est pas une bonne nouvelle". I'm struggling trying to find the equivalent in English, since "news" is invariable and singular.

This is definitely no good news.
This is definitely not a good news. (I don't think so, because "news" cannot have any article before, can it ?)
This is definitely not good news.

Or are there other possibilities ?
