Bowie Comeback Shoots To iTunes No.1
David Bowie and surprised critics with his first single in ten years shooting to the top of the UK iTunes chart on its day of release. "Where Are We Now?" was released at short notice yesterday (January 8) on his 66th birthday, alongside news of a new album "The Next Day" to be launched on March 11. It is his first album since "Reality" in 2003. The ethereal song and video, seen below, proved popular with his fans across social media and by 3pm in the UK it had overtaken hit songs by Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Bookmakers have already slashed odds on the new album going to number 1 in the chart to 6-1. UG readers were generally receptive to the song: captainperoxide - "Bit of a grower, this one. Took me a few listens to really appreciate it." bee5ify - "ERMAGERHD DERVID BERWIE!" ace3494 - "He doesn't need any autotune, he should have just ditched it the reason I like Bowie is because of his short, haunting delivery, not his pitch perfect vocals." Clarkinator - "I like a lot of his older stuff, not a big fan of this one though. Still, the dude is a legend, and its cool to see him back on the scene making new music." What do you think of the new David Bowie song "Where Are We Now?" Do you agree that it's a 'grower'? Hear it here and let us know in the comments.
