David Bowie Releases First Song in 10 Years, Announces New AlbumJan 8, 2013 @ 11:54 am
It’s been a really big day for David Bowie! The rock legend turns 66 today, and in honor of his birthday, he just announced he’ll release his first album in 10 years, The Next Day, on March 12 in the U.S. As a lead-up to the new record—his 27th to date, a follow-up to 2003′s Reality—he also released the first song, “Where Are We Now?,” and an accompanying video. True to the British rocker’s oddball sensibility, the video shows footage from Berlin, as the song tells the story of Bowie’s day-to-day life when he lived in the city for three years in the 1970s. However, rather than appear as himself, Bowie replaced the head of a stuffed animal with his own face, as he watches the Berlin reel behind him. Watch the clip above! And, in honor of his birthday, his supermodel wife Iman answered his question via Twitter: “”Where are we now?” Right here in you arms.. now & forever! Happy Birthday, David
#imantruelove.” What a gift!
