New Bowie Music!
In his long career David Bowie has never been afraid to be experimental and daring. I've liked Bowie since the Ziggy days and loved the various characters he created along with the music. Always reluctant to live his life in the limelight, after nothing new from him for ten years, I, like many others, thought that he had just quietly retired. Then suddenly, with no fanfare at all, on his 66th birthday, he released the single Where Are We Now, via the Internet. It's a poignant, odd and very moving song, which reminiscences about his time decades ago spent in that most enigmatic of places, Berlin. It is accompanied by a wonderful, slightly surreal black and white video that compliments the song perfectly. Great stuff, good to have Bowie back!
