David Bowie has released new single 'Where Are We Now?', taken from his new album - his first in ten years. Listen to the track below.
The track is the first to be taken from his new album, The Next Day, which is set for release in March of this year and is his first studio album since his 2003 release, Reality. 'Where Are We Now?' was written by Bowie alongside long term collaborator Tony Visconti in New York and a video for the track has also been released.
A spokesperson for Bowie said: "Throwing shadows and avoiding the industry treadmill is very David Bowie despite his extraordinary track record that includes album sales in excess of 130 million not to mention his massive contributions in the area of art, fashion, style, sexual exploration and social commentary."
"It goes without saying that he has sold out stadiums and broken ticket records throughout the world during this most influential of careers."

Bowie's son, film director Duncan Jones revealed the news on Twitter earlier today (8 January, 2012), saying:
"So... First off, its midnight in NY. That means, a HUGE HAPPY BIRTHDAY is in order to my very lovely, very talented dad!" he wrote. "Been ten years since his last album...."
"Would be lovely if all of you could spread the word about da's new album. First in ten years, and its a good 'un!"
'Where Are We Now?' is available now on iTunes.
