Bowie back after 10 years
Shock return: Bowie in the new video
David Bowie has exploded out of a decade of obscurity and launched a video for new single Where Are We Now? taken from upcoming album The Next Day.
He marked his 66th birthday this morning with a website revamp alongside the surprise news of the studio record’s release, set for March.
A press release explains: “January 8 is a timely moment for such a treasure to appear as if out of nowhere.
“In recent years radio silence has been broken only by endless speculation, rumour and wishful thinking. A new record – who would have ever thought it, who’d have ever dreamed it! After all, David is the kind of artist who writes and performs what he wants when he wants; when he has something to say as opposed to something to sell.
“Today he definitely has something to say.”
Where Are We Now? was produced by Tony Visconti and looks back on Bowie’s time in Berlin. It’s one of 14 tracks which will appear on the standard version of The Next Day, with three additional songs to appear on the deluxe version.
