Bowie's birthday surprise

POSTED Jan 9, 2013

David Bowie has chosen his 66th birthday to break a ten-year silence by releasing a new single...with a full album to follow.

The single, 'Where Are We Now?' is currently showing on Bowie's website, with the album, The Next Day - produced by long-time collaborator Tony Visconti - due in March.

It's safe to say that the music press was taken completely by surprise, prompting several deliciously understated comments like this by journalist Caitlin Moran: "I'm so insanely excited," she wrote "It's like hearing King Arthur's voice from the cave."
