Where Are We Now?
David. Bowie. Is. Back.
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.
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.
