David Bowie, Glam Rock superstar, has donned countless personas and experimented with many musical styles over the course of his twenty four studio-album and forty four-year-long career. Thus, when the singer-songwriter announces a new release, the music industry never knows what to expect.

Nonetheless, “Where Are We Now?,” (featured above) a build-up piano ballad with a beautifully uplifting finale, seems to touch upon themes that resonate throughout much of Bowie’s classic material, including loss of connection to society, mystery and the power of human contact.

On his 66th birthday, Bowie published a post on his website regarding a new studio album, “The Next Day,” his first since 2003′s “Reality.” “The Next Day” will drop on March 8th, 2013 and will feature fourteen tracks plus three additional bonus tracks:

    Zzzzzzz. Oh. I’m sorry. Is the ballad over? Not the smartest track to release first in my opinion. But the drums finally kicked in…..Is that what you meant by upbeat?

      Yeah it’s pretty cheesy and not too original, but it’s a decent listen. And I said “uplifting” not “upbeat.” I like the ending
