Excellent news: David Bowie has just released the first single from his new album, “Where Are We Now?”:
The single is currently available at iTunes and the album itself will appear by March of this year. This is Mr. Bowie’s first new work in (gasp!) ten long years. For a while there, it appeared he might be retiring but I’m glad we’re getting at least one more taste of his (to my ears) very unique and compelling work.

UPDATE: All right, I’ve given the above song a few listens and I have to say I’m very impressed. The song is haunting, introspective piece that grows on you with each listen. Certainly fills me with optimism and curiosity regarding the entire album. The album, titled “The Next Day”, has 17 (!) tracks on the iTunes “Deluxe” edition.
Should be interesting!
