Late last night (or early this morning depending on your personal schedule), word came through that 66-year-old birthday boy and unquestioned art-pop legend David Bowie will be releasing a new record, entitled The Next Day on March 12 in the U.S. and slightly earlier than that in Australia, where they are used to living tomorrow’s future right now. This came as something of a surprise, given the nearly ten-year gap that followed his next-most-recent record, Reality, which had most people assuming he’d given up recording for good.

The first single from Bowie’s 30th (!) studio album is called “Where Are We Now?” and already has a slightly unsettling video, which you can watch below.
