Where Are We Now?

David. Bowie. Is. Back.

Photo By Frank YangFrank YangFew things merit a 1AM blog post. David Bowie announcing a new album – at the stroke of his 66th birthday, no less – is one of them.

Watch the video for the first single, “Where Are We Now?”, at his website. You can buy it now at iTunes. It’s a stately return, all steady build and chiming guitars; it’s hard to say if the tingles are from the song itself or just the fact that it’s a NEW DAVID BOWIE SONG but it’s exciting. So exciting. And to everyone I’ve told over the years, “yeah I think he’s retired, it’s over” – I’ve never been more happy to be wrong.

Check out details on the album, entitled The Next Day, at Slicing Up Eyeballs.

It’s out March 12, but David Bowie’s owning of 2013 begins. Right. Now.

Update: The Guardian has a good piece on the background of the new song and why this is exciting beyond it just being a new Bowie record; when was the last time in this day and age that you were actually surprised by something like this?
Update 2: There’s a piece on the rather familiar artwork for the new album at Virusfonts.

    I actually just found out about this in today’s Star, then immediately came here to see what you had to say about it – because I knew you would – and I’m as happy you were wrong as you are.
