David Bowie is Back

David Bowie is celebrating his 66th birthday today (Tuesday) by releasing his first new music in nearly a decade.

Just after midnight, a message was posted on his Facebook account alerting fans to visit his official website with the words, “Think we’re in for a big surprise…This is really turning out to be quite some birthday!” above a big question mark.

Once fans click through to Bowie’s site, they learned his new single “Where Are We Now?,” produced by long-time collaborator Tony Visconti, is now available via iTunes and a video for the track has been posted on the site via Vimeo. And, “The Next Day”, Bowie’s first studio album since 2003’s Reality, will be released March 12th in the U.S. The album, Bowie’s 30th studio effort, can be pre-ordered now via iTunes in a standard edition and a deluxe version featuring three bonus tracks.

Bowie has been a virtual recluse since suffering a heart attack in 2004, but he does appear in the new video — or at least his head does.
