After a Decade Hiatus, David Bowie Is Back With a Love Letter to Berlin

Yesterday was a big day for David Bowie. Not only was it the Ziggy Stardust singer's 66th birthday, but it also saw the announcement that he's release a new album after a 10 year hiatus. Set to launch in March, The Next Day will be Bowie's 30th release. To celebrate the news, Bowie premiered the first video for the song Where Are We Now from the upcoming record. The somewhat melancholy track is paired with footage from the musician's time in Berlin in the 1970s. It is directed by the conceptual artist Tony Oursler, who has a knack for the surreal.

Not only a musician and artist, Bowie is also a philanthropist, involved in a number of benefits and charities like Keep a Child Alive, and Save the Children. With all this on his plate it's no surprise that, according to the BBC, it took him almost two years to complete The Next Day.

Below is a sneak peak at the new video:
