I do not think much of the song, but that might be because the video is borderline boring/ugly. The new album, New Day might be good though.

Thanks. He is this far along but the album is still 3 months away? Must be in the mixing stage.

Mixing stage or perhaps 3 months rehearsing a new show for a spring/summer tour? I guess it's just a fan's wishful thinking but it's his call if his health is up for a tour, or maybe a select city tour like the Stones. Either way, it's good to have him back.

Do people actually bet on these things?

I never knew something like this existed, what nonsense, hey maybe us talking about a tour will tilt the odds LOL

1 Britney Spears
2 Taylor Swift
3 James Arthur
4 Rihanna
5 Calvin Harris
6 David Bowie

'Where Are We Now?' is Bowie's first UK Top 10 single in over two decades.
The last one was 1986's 'Absolute Beginners'.

The song is growing on me, I read the rest of the album is much harder, maybe he'll change his mind about touring when he sees the chart success.

Much harder... Good! He could do one of those Rolling Stones mini-tours.

It would be cool if he picked out a record and played the whole thing during a show.
Might I suggest Diamond Dogs...

Love the the video...Thank God, David's back.

This is the type of stuff that he excells at...I'm in a minority but the stuff like "Earthling" really alienated(no pun intended) me. "Heathen" had some really good songs on it and this seems like it's in the same vein.

@vivazappa Diamond Dogs is my all time favorite Bowie album, that would be great live, so would Station to Station.

Agree..I saw the 76 tour and 4 of the 6 Station tunes were played...Wild is the Wind and Golden Years got skipped...if Dave had to skip two those would be it!

I am glad you like it Rogers, but for me, I can't believe they would use that excuse for a piece of crap album cover. So let's see... the cover sucks... the video sucks... the new song isn't very good... I can only hope the album will be better than all of the above.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 18, 2013 2:24:45 PM PST
B. rogers, i agree. I went to You Tube to check it out after your rave. It's great! Very Bowie. Cool video and song. Forward and backward at the same time. Nice stuff. I'm gettin' the record for sure.

Heathen had a Neil Young? cover song i liked a lot. It's a 50/50 album for me. But still a cool sound and record overall.

In the latest Rolling Stone magazine(which has about as many pages as a restaurant menu lately) Earl Slick says that a "couple of songs sound Stones-y" like the way the Diamond Dogs album sounded.

Even at 66 years of age...Bowie still captivates the rock world and keeps them guessing. It's typical of Bowie to allow the world to think he has retired and withered away into an unhealthy recluse only to be working on "The Secret"!

The Rolling Stone article also said that he absolutely won't tour. That's too bad, but maybe he doesn't want to take unnecessary risks with his health.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 21, 2013 5:29:55 PM PST
I would rather have an album than a tour.

Tony Visconti says he may do the odd show here and there but a tour is completely out of the question. I don't think it's so much about his health as he's really had no significant health issues (that we know of) since he had his angioplasty about ten years ago. I think that the guy just figures he's earned the right to do what he wants when he wants and he doesn't want to deal with the grind of a tour. I can understand that. And I'd rather have the album as well.

Bowie said he was always looking for a way out.

It appears to me that he WAS out. For over ten years. HE'S the one who's brought himself back in. Basically, nobody knew that he was recording nor planning to release an album. And at some point, he may yet decide to tour, though he seems pretty adamant about not doing that. Almost as adamant as we had heard up to this point about him ever releasing more music, eh?
