Where Are We Now

 

The first scrap of music to be heard from the Thin White Duke in nearly 10 years, “Where Are We Now” was posted out-of-the-blue on Bowie’s website last night. 

The lead single from his forthcoming LP, The Next Day, “Where Are We Now” shimmers with Eighties-style synths and Bowie’s fragile warble. Recounting his days spent in Berlin, it’s a melancholy walk through Bowie’s memories, until the drums start to race, and then everything starts to gleam. 

The Next Day is due out in March.

  1. An amazing and lovely song. The video makes it look like a return to Berlin heroes days – maybe it is, but a very different mood. He still manages to sound vulnerable…and I guess he is, as we all are.
