The new track, ‘Where Are We Now?’ is a woozy stroll down memory strasse in Berlin, which builds to an air-punching conclusion. It’s great. You can watch the lo-fi video, directed by Tony Oursler,¬†here:

Bowie’s new album The Next Day was produced by longtime collaborator Tony Visconti and was recorded in New York.

The happiest record label in the world right now, Columbia, said,¬†”Throwing shadows and avoiding the industry treadmill is very David Bowie despite his extraordinary track record that includes album sales in excess of 130m, not to mention his massive contributions in the area of art, fashion, style, sexual exploration and social commentary.”

Bowie’s website has been give a spring clean for the occasion.

The Guardian reports that there are no plans for any live dates or any interviews.

Happy Tuesday!
