David Bowie has returned after a decade of silence with a new single and details of a fresh album, on the morning of his 66th birthday.
The single "Where Are We Now?", which you can hear in the player below, was produced by Tony Visconti and reflects on his time in Berlin. It will appear on his album "The Next Day", which is set for release in March.
Unusually, it sounds like Bowie has finally had to relent to auto-tune technology for his singing in the choruses.
His 10-year hiatus has been plagued by rumors of ill health. A press release explains why he's back:
In recent years radio silence has been broken only by endless speculation, rumour and wishful thinking. A new record who would have ever thought it, who'd have ever dreamed it! After all, David is the kind of artist who writes and performs what he wants when he wants; when he has something to say as opposed to something to sell.
Today he definitely has something to say.
