David Bowie: Where Are We Now?

Quote
David Bowie celebrated his 66th birthday today by dropping a new single "Where Are We Now?", which went live in the early hours of Jan. 8 through Iso/Columbia Records. Today's retail release is an exclusive across the iTunes Store in 119 countries.

The Thin White Duke has been away for some time. Too long. But it seems he's not been idle. "Where Are We Now?" is a taster of a promised new album "The Next Day", his 30th studio recording and his first since "Reality" ten years ago. "The Next Day" will also be distributed as a pre-order, in the "standard" and "deluxe" packages, the latter containing three bonus tracks. The staggered release will arrive in Australia on March 8, followed by the rest of the world-excluding the U.S. on March 11 and the U.S. the following day.

The new single is written by Bowie, and recorded in New York with his long-term collaborator Tony Visconti on production duties. It's a slow tempo number that grows in intensity from a swelling guitar play.

Bowie's surprise birthday gift to his fans includes a video, directed by Tony Oursler. In the clip - which can be seen here - Bowie revisits the well that was his Berlin years. He's seen looking-in on the auto repair store beneath the apartment he lived during the '70s, as footage flashes past detailing the bleak landscape of the German capital's recent past. There's more than a touch of Johnny Cash's remarkable promo for "Hurt".

There is no news, however, on whether Bowie will tour in support of the album.

David Bowie: Five Years (Showtime)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJrLec4RBXY

Showtime has recently added a documentary about a small part of David Bowieís life. Called 5 years, because itís about 5 significant different times that Bowie reimagined himself.

Not a bad hour. It has all kinds of behind the scenes footage. Lots of discussions from those artists who help define the sound Bowie was looking for. The occasional bits and pieces from Bowie himself.  It went pretty quick. I didnít find any filler.

Iím a casual fan. I really like his hits, but donít care too much about the surrounding work. I still say he has one of the greatest voices in the industry. I just wish he did more stuff that appealed to me.

Yet, I really dug getting close into his different persona's.

I'd like to see this myself. As you pointed out, I'm not what you would call a 'fan' of his, but like plenty of songs he has done. Is there one album that kick ass from start to finish? I always hear Ziggy Stardust as being top shelf. I've heard a few songs from it. Who hasn't?! But I've never been able to ask any one person what THEIR experience is with it.
