The famously androgynous British rocker David Bowie dropped a bomb on the music world Tuesday.
On his 66th birthday, Jan. 8, Bowie released a new single "Where Are We Now?" and an accompanying music video. He also announced plans for his first LP in a decade, The Next Day.
Today, Rolling Stone has an article about Bowie's comeback, in which longtime producer Tony Visconti revealed Bowie had been secretly recording the album for the past two years.
"If people are looking for classic Bowie," Visconti told Rolling Stone, "they'll find that on this album. If they're looking for innovative Bowie, some new directions, they'll find that on this album, too."
The Next Day hits stores in early March. For now, check out Bowie's introspective new take below.
