What a great surprise! David Bowie has released his first new music in ten years with Where are We Now?
It’s a very good song, with that epic quality that embodies so much of his best work. The tune is very similar to his 1979 single Boys Keep Swinging, but it wouldn’t be the first time Bowie has ripped off one of his own songs to good effect. Hopefully it signals a return to form on his upcoming album after the rather lackluster Reality (2003) and only half good Heathen (2002).
Bowie is far and away my favourite recording artist, and I own the bulk of his many albums. I may do an official guide to Bowie in a future post or two.
