MUSIC: David Bowie Drops First Single In A Decade

David Bowie is 66 years old today and, to celebrate, he’s released his first single in a decade: “Where Are We Now” is a silky smooth, ballad, at once sexy and contemplative—and maybe a little sad. The song comes to us ahead of Bowie’s 30th album, The Next Day, due out in March.

Though the The Next Day was written in New York, the new single zeroes in on the city of Berlin, possibly reflecting on Bowie’s post-Ziggy Stardust “Berlin Era.”
