Great to have new music by Bowie. I was wondering if anyone knows if I'll Take You There on the deluxe edition is a cover of the old Staple Singers hit. Just curious.

Is that what the cover art is going to look like? Kind of odd but then again it is David. Not sure about the song, have not heard any of them yet.

I'm assuming the album title and cover art refer to the lyric of "Heroes": "We can be heroes, just for one day..."

No that's the artwork for another album cover just something to fill in until it gets done or available for display...sounds like good titles i'm sure it'll at least be "good" to very good.

Oh gee, its an album cover people, get over it.

What I'm concerned about is will this be on Amazon Autorip? If I buy the physical media from amazon, will I automatically get the mp3's in my cloud? I don't see the Autorip icon near the price, but it's a farily new amazon feature so I'm not sure...

If this is the cover (and it is the same one posted on Bowie's own site) it is obviously a commentary on the irrelevence of cover art in this era of digital downloads. Tony Visconti says the actual CD rocks as hard as anything Bowie has ever done.

The Starman pulls off the greatest comeback album in rock'n'roll history with The Next Day
Andy Gill listens to Bowie's first album in a decade - The Next Day (Iso/Columbia) - and says it's as good as anything he's ever made.
From The Independent:

Recorded over the past two or three years in complete secrecy, and heralded by the sudden appearance in January of the single "Where Are We Now?", David Bowie's The Next Day may be the greatest comeback album ever.

It's certainly rare to hear a comeback effort that not only reflects an artist's own best work, but stands alongside it in terms of quality, as The Next Day does. The fact that producer Tony Visconti has worked with Bowie since the Seventies undoubtedly helps cement the connection with his earlier work - there are constant frissons of recognition while listening to these songs, as if Bowie is deliberately mining memories. That notion is reinforced by the typically artful cover, which takes the original sleeve for the "Heroes" album and partly obscures its image with a simple sans-serif font title panel and, on the rear, a similarly blunt track listing, making the new album a sort of palimpsest of history.

But if the design and sound suggest a link with the past, the songs - save for "Where Are We Now?" - are all about today, as might be expected from such an astute barometer of societal and cultural mores as Bowie. Visconti has suggested in interviews that some songs, notably the title track, were prompted by the singer's recent immersion in books about medieval history; but whatever their origins, the songs seem to refract elements of the modern day, offering sometimes brutal commentaries on contemporary events.

And there's a sleek, muscular modernity about the arrangements, mostly recorded with such Bowie stalwarts as guitarist Gerry Leonard, bassist Gail Anne Dorsey and drummer Zachary Alford, with telling contributions from rock guitarist Earl Slick and avant-rock soundscape guitarist David Torn. The result is an album that conveys, with apt anxiety or disgust, the fears and troubles of a world riven by conflict and distracted by superficial celebrity.
