Bowie is back!

New song, video, album announced on legend's 66th birthday

Elvis Presley wasn't the only birthday boy this week.

David Bowie turned 66 yesterday, and stunned fans who had assumed he was retired with news of a new album, "The Next Day," with a single and video available now. The single, "Where Are We Now," is hardly the stuff of rave-up celebration—it's a somewhat dour number (with a genuinely unsettling video) about Germany, but it's still new Bowie (produced by Tony Visconti, no less!) and that is worth anyone's time. The record, whose cover art is also a huge mind-boggler, with its unflinching reference to one of his most iconic images (see below:),
will be released in March.
