David Bowie’s always been a pretty strange man and musician, but his 66th birthday might go down in the records as his strangest year, yet. Fans of the musician woke up this morning to “Where are We Now?”, a reflective new single that features Bowie singing about the jungles of Berlin, Germany. For a man who has rarely stepped out in public over the last decade, the new music is wholly unexpected, and a bit of a treat.



The song’s a little maudlin in spots and yearning in others, but it pays off in the end when a more urgent Bowie gets excited about the importance of everything from “rain” to “me and you.” Whether or not you are in love with “Where are We Now” is less important at this juncture than the fact that Bowie’s back, and he even reinstituted his website for the occasion. According to The Guardian, the track was produced with long-time collaborator Tony Visconti and was recorded in New York City.

As if that’s not enough good news for one day, Bowie also announced he has a new album in the works. While the 66-year-old has put an album out this millennium, the last time we heard from him was all the way back in 2003, with Reality. The artist’s new album and first in a decade will be called The Next Day and will be available for purchase in March. The album will also mark another recording milestone: it will be Bowie’s 30th studio album.
