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!!

To be completely honest, I've never really gotten into Bowie. I'm not sure why though, every time a bowie song comes on the radio I really like it, but I've never bought a bowie album despite them always being on my list of albums to check out.
That being said, This single has really got me mesmerized, I would like this song no matter who was singing it, It's just a great song to me. Particularly that chord change that comes when he says "Walking the dead". Very subtle, yet so captivating.
I'll make a note to make this my first Bowie album, There is something different about listing to a contemporary album as apposed to the 30 or 40 year old albums that make up the majority of my collection, and It'll be interesting to start here.

Good song, if only all pop was like this...
I've been a big Bowie fan since his early days although I admit that I rarely listen to his latest albums, but a new album by him is always good news. Unlike other artists he has always maintained a very decent level of integrity and it seems that in his late years even more than in his middle period.

Nothing ever does. But, for me, I'm a David Bowie fan...I know how to gauge/judge material on my own. I don't care if the media touts this as "the greatest thing since whatever"...that won't matter to me or, I suspect, any other longtime Bowie fan.

After listening to the single and seeing the new album cover, Bowie should've kept his music coat on the coat rack

Awww criticdrumer94, in my mind I am wishing your reply is a freudian slip Wink, hihihi LOL but I think not Unhappy I love Bowie, he was grounbreaking with his music and style. From the bits and pieces I have heard of his new album I am over the moon, that voice, the sexiest voice and sexiest man alive.
Hug to you, criticdrummer94 Hug plus Bowie double kicks *ss Big smile

The album is a bizarre oddity
but this has me really intrigued!. I would love to hear this when I get a chance, and it definitely has one of the strangest album covers ever. Its as if someone grabbed "Heroes" and defaced it, like Andy Warhol, a fan of his at one stage. I like Bowie especially songs liked cracked actor, Jean Jeannie, Heroes, Ziggy Stardust, Starman, and Space Oddity, also adore his Low era and definitely "Scary Monsters" namely Ashes to Ashes and title track. The film Man who fell to earth still fascinates me as a cult classic and I would watch it next time it is screened on air.  I even liked Bowies acting on Cat People and definitely Labyrinth!!!!
