David Bowie Paintings: Just like many others around the globe, I was saddened by the departure of a great artist of our age – David Bowie. I have to admit, though, my sadness is somehow selfish. I knew that it wouldn’t be long until my turn facing the end of this life, just like my favourite artist who sang me these songs that I grew up listening to. (more…)
Everybody’s praise Bowie and his brand new “The Next Day” album, which comes after a heart attack and a serious 10 years gap. The 66 year old Bowie announced the release of his new album at his 66 birthday.
True, between the fabulous 2003’s “Reality” and this brand new album we had “Toy”, in March 2011, Bowie’s previously unreleased album from 2001 (another 10 years gap fulfilled), which leaked onto the internet, containing material used for “Heathen” and most of its single B-sides, but, that was just a bitter-sweet delicatessen for inpatient fans and “pour le connaisseur”, isn’t it?
The cover for “The Next Day” was designed by Jonathan Barnbrook, and it plays on the iconic cover of 1977’s “Heroes” – witch was the second installment of his Berlin Trilogy with Brian Eno, while the cover photo was shot by Masayoshi Sukita. And somehow “The Next Day” it’s a trip back to Berlin, a journey in the search of lost (and eventually find) love, soul, spirit or anything else. Or a seek and hide with Mr. Death. But the first released single, “Where Are We Now?” take us back to Berlin literally and emotionally. So, Ziggy Stardust is back and he’s gonna eat your heart out! (more…)

David Bowie’s surprise comeback track, “where Are We Now?” was released without warning or fanfare on Bowie’s 66th birthday on Tuesday and is the first single from his first new studio album since Reality in 2003, album which will be released in March.
The disturbingly emotional, downbeat song has failed to top the singles charts, only making it to number six, still, it has become his first top 10 single for 20 years, and his highest charting hit since Absolute Beginners reached number 2 in 1986, according to the Official Charts Company.
The album, entitled “The Next Day”, will marks the renewal of Bowie’s long-term relationship with producer Tony Visconti, who also worked on a range of albums with the singer, including Low, Heroes, Lodger, Young Americans and Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps).
Director Tony Oursler’s created an enigmatic promotional film for David Bowie’s new single. So, Let’s walking the dead now! (more…)
