David Bowie Releases New Material After Decade Break
Star Man announces new album The Next Day, out this March...
David Bowie has confirmed he will be releasing a new album - his first in over a decade - in March.
The Life On Mars hitmaker's son Duncan Jones made the announcement via his Twitter page today (8th January - his father's 66th birthday), with it later being confirmed that Bowie's new LP will be titled The Next Day.
He wrote: "Would be lovely if all of you could spread the word about da's new album. First in ten years, and its a good 'un!
"Also, what better way to knock Taylor feckin' Swift off the top of the charts! ;)"
A statement on Bowie's official website also read: "David is the kind of artist who writes and performs what he wants when he wants...when he has something to say as opposed to something to sell. Today he definitely has something to say."
Bowie's first single from the album, entitled Where Are We Now?, has already stormed the UK iTunes chart - currently sitting at No.2 behind Will.I.Am and Britney Spears' collaboration Scream & Shout.
The Next Day is due for release in the UK on 11th March.
