David Bowie has announced today (his 66th birthday) that he is releasing a new single entitled, Where Are We Now?, and a new album on 11th March called The Next Day. The single is available now on iTunes.
Where Are We Now? is a gorgeous, atmospheric tune and produced by Tony Visconti, producer of many Bowie classics.
You can hear the single at DavidBowie.com or on the link here. The thoughtful and odd video features a two headed teddy bear with Bowie’s face(!) and looks like it was filmed in Berlin. Bowie, Berlin, great new single, album on the way….it doesn’t get much better than this!
Not only is this the first thing Bowie has done in nearly a decade, after what many (including myself) believed was an example of a great man enjoying his retirement, it is actually very very good indeed.
What a start to 2013! We also have the David Bowie Is exhibition at the V&A museum starting on 23rd March: my ticket is booked.
