Interesting, I thought he'd hung it up for good.  The single sounds pretty good -- nothing really surprising about it, given Bowie's penchant for frequently reinventing himself and trying to stay on the vanguard of modern music.  This one feels more reflective and settled than forward-looking.  But I guess his last album was kind of like that too, from what I remember.

That's very surprising, didn' thought he'd release any new album at all. Anyway, great news!

This is so exciting for me! I love David Bowie! The single reminds me, a little bit, of "Thursday's Child" off of the 'Hours...' album, but maybe a slight bit more melancholy.

I can't wait for March!!

Best musical news in a long, long time - although I don't believe it's going to be a cheerful album.

Wow, I thought his musical career was over for good. The song is a bit dull, similar to the stuff on Hours, just with better production. The video is brilliant though. I'm not expecting much from the album, but who knows? Maybe it's good.

It's a win-win situation. Either it's a joke and the real cover will be revealed later, in which case it's hilarious, or it's the actual cover, in which case it's actually even more hilarious.

My gut tells me it's gonna be a disaster. The album and the single.

I like the single...a lot, actually. Can't wait for the album. I know in my heart of hearts that he won't tour, but I'm praying that a "selection of shows" a la Phil Collins will pop up. :p

The single was decent. I actually have this gut feeling that this is going to be one of those epic introspective and somber albums musicians always release when they're older.

The single wasn't very happy, was it?  About as cheerful as the movie "Brazil"! Disapprove

Still, I sense the brilliance.  I only wish Bob Fripp would collaborate with Bowie again!  They have many life experiences that they could share.  

Best of wishes to David, and good health!

According to Tony Visconti, it's more of a "rock" album than the single would have believe. I'm quite relieved. Reality had some pretty awesome rock songs for a fiftysomething guy, so I'm hoping for some awesome rock songs by a sixtysomething guy now.

I think the single is good, too.

As for the cover art, there's no way that's the actual cover. But I think the square-over-the-face might be a theme, because that was on his website too...but over a different picture.

I'll say it again...I LOVE DAVID BOWIE!!

No surprise to anyone that I'm a Bowie fan; but one of things I admired about him was his ability to know when to get off the stage.
