Bowie celebrated on Tuesday by releasing a single called “Where Are We Now?” The somber track is from his new CD, The Next Day, which will be released on March 12. And he did not make the masses aware of his intention to release his first new album in a decade until he was munching on some birthday cake on Tuesday. ”Rolling Stone” reports Bowie has been working on the disc secretly for two years.
And I was just watching “Zoolander” the other day and wondering if Bowie was ever going to release any more music. There’s no word yet if Bowie will also tour for the first time since 2004. I really hope he does. I first became aware of Bowie when he was churning out incredible 1980s hits like “Let’s Dance,” “China Girl,” “Modern Love,” and “Blue Jean.” Coupled with his early career, including the The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars days, Bowie has firmly established himself as a rock legend.
If he decides to hit the road in 2013, it could be a monster year for nostalgic rock acts. Keep your fingers crossed.
