Today David Bowie turned the tender age of 66 and surprised the world with news of a forthcoming brand new record, first track, album art, and a new video for “Where Are We Now?”
The album is titled The Next Day, and marks his 30th studio recording after ten years of silence, hitting stores on March 12th via Columbia. Produced in New York by Bowie himself along with Tony Visconti, the first track of the album “Where Are We Now?” comes along with a video directed by Tony Oursler, reflecting on time spent in Berlin in the lat 70’s.
In the press release from Columbia, the spokesperson said the following:
“Throwing shadows and avoiding the industry treadmill is very David Bowie despite his extraordinary track record that includes album sales in excess of 130m, not to mention his massive contributions in the area of art, fashion, style, sexual exploration, and social commentary.”
No word on weather or not there will be a tour along with the release or not, but we’re pretty excited to share all this amazing news with you today! Happy Birthday Bowie!
