On his 66th birthday, David Bowie decided to give every fan of his a birthday present. The ageless rock god announced a brand new album The Next Day set to be released March 12th on Columbia Records via his website and in true Bowie fashion – he’s not doing any interviews for it. Meaning, we get Bowie on Bowie’s own time.

As far as the track and video for “Where Are We Now?” it’s bemoaning with cascading guitars and the singer sounding as crisp as ever vocally. The video directed by Tony Ousler takes us back to the 70s when the legend lived above a Berlin auto repair shop crafting some of his best work from his trio of albums with Brian Eno Lodger, Heroes & Low as well as Lust For Life, one of two collaborative efforts with Iggy Pop.
