David Bowie releases first song in decade on 66th birthday
LONDON (AFP) - British rock icon David Bowie broke a decade-long musical silence on Tuesday, unveiling a new single to coincide with his 66th birthday and announcing that he will release an album in March.
The outlandish star surprised fans by posting a video for the single, entitled Where Are We Now?, on his website (www.davidbowie.com), and it will also be available to download on iTunes.
The new album, The Next Day, will be released on March 11.
Bowie has been a relative recluse in recent years, having released no new music since his last album, Reality, in 2003, and having not performed live since 2006.
