January 8, 2013

Bowie's Next Day album cover

David Bowie celebrated his 66th birthday this morning by releasing a new single and annoucing that his first album in 10 years will come out in March. News of a new release from the legendary musician came as a surprise to fans, as Bowie has been out of the public spotlight for years and many assumed he had essentially retired from music.

The new single, "Where Are We Now?," is already being sold in the iTunes Music Store in 119 countries. Bowie's 30th studio recording, dubbed The Next Day, is also available for pre-order on iTunes. Produced by long-time collaborator Tony Visconti, "Where Are We Now?" was written by Bowie and recorded in New York. The single is accompanied by a haunting video directed by Tony Oursler which harks back to the singer's time in Berlin.

The Next Day will be released March 12 in the U.S., with a March 8 releasd in Australia and March 11 in the rest of the world.
The album will be released as a 14-track standard version, or a deluxe edition with bonus tracks. The tracklisting, according to Bowie's website, is as follows:

1. The Next Day
2. Dirty Boys
3. The Stars (Are Out Tonight)
4. Love Is Lost
5. Where Are We Now?
6. Valentine's Day
7. If You Can See Me
8. I'd Rather Be High
9. Boss Of Me
10. Dancing Out In Space
11. How Does The Grass Grow
12. (You Will) Set The World On Fire
13. You Feel So Lonely You Could Die
