Well, David Bowie has managed to surprise us yet again. The shape-shifting rock star whose collection of album covers brings to mind the morphing segment of Michael Jackson’s “Black or White” video recently announced that he had secretly recorded a new album, titled The Next Day, his first in 10 years.

There was much discussion among fans and critics regarding the secrecy surrounding it: why he did it and how he did it, as well as the decision to make the album cover look like a quick paste-over of Heroes. But Bowie is no slack and I’m sure the motivations and intentions, or at least more theories, will come to light as we get closer to the album’s release in mid-March. In the meantime, here’s the first single, titled “Where Are We Now?”
