Nice Tweet by Duncan Jones:

"Would be lovely if all of you could spread the word about da's new album. First in ten years, and it's a good 'un!"

If it's as good as Heathen, then I'll be a happy chappy.

Who's the parrot on his shoulder in the video ?

Underwhelming is how I would describe the song.  I'm a fan of Bowie, but I hope the rest of the album is better than this single.

Rega RP3/Elys 2 - Graham Slee Gram Amp 1 - Rega Apollo R - Exposure 1010 amp - Dynaudio DM2/6 - Chord Co. Chameleon VEE3/Rumour 2 - Musical Fidelity V90-HPA - Sennheiser HD595

On the second 'news' excerpt it seemed familiar, like I had heard it many times before not just once.

What do you expect from a 66-year-old?  :roll:

No, it doesn't jump-up and grab you by the Suffragette 'Cities' - it's more of a Heathen- / Reality-style piece. Thank Gawd for some dignity.

But in the current era... it's good to hear a vocal with a bit of emotion but sans any showboating.

Good to hear a vocal with decent diction - no "Sky-foals" or "crum-bawls" here.

Liking the overall slow build to an understated crescendo.

Liking the drumming.

Liking the keyboards. 

Definitely a grower.

And at the last count, It's number-one in the iTunes UK chart.

Oh, and happy birthday DB - ta for the 'present'. (He's always scanning this forum, don'tcha know.)

Nice song, bit of a Slow Burn feel about it.

What a daft video.  I wonder who the woman is.

RE: New Bowie studio album / single / vid!!

Bowie has always perplexed me somewhat. To draw on a line from 'Trainspotting'; a bit like Clapton and Lou Reed, in your heart you want their stuff to be great and it should be, but alas it usually ends up sounding a bit pants. Nevertheless I'm optimistically intrigued as to what the new album has in store!

From the snippets that I heard, I was immediately reminded of the Blue Nile.

As they are growers, this is no bad thing.

I doubt all the tracks will be similar though.

RE: New Bowie studio album / single / vid!!

Reminded me of 'Loving the Alien' which I liked and  which also had a very strange video. Lyrics are a bit of an A-Z of Berlin but the music's good and he seems to have said goodbye to Reeves Gabrels.

PS isn't there a music forum here?

OH, your privvy to his bank account and expenditure are you ?

My point is that a lot of acts try to reserect a career when they have not been around for some time, a lot of old bands and acts try this when they have not been in the headlines for a while.

I find it a tad embarrasing to see a load of old pensioners trying to be modern..........
