WHERE IS BOWIE NOW?

PHOTOGRAPHY JIMMY KING



He is turning 66, and, incredibly, still writing songs we're putting on repeat. For the first time in ten years, David Bowie has released a new album, and it's available today (January 8th), exclusively on iTunes. The video for the single "Where Are We Now?" feels appropriately stripped-down, considering the choice to forgo the major-label route he's indulged in the past. Directed by Tony Oursler, it features Bowie as one of the video artist's signature dolls, snuggled up to a silent friend. The extra footage and the song tell a somber story—readable in the lyrics, typed out fan-vid style over the action—set in a somber Berlin. This is a humble Bowie but a strong and aware one, with little to no irony. Coming from a career track that has emphasized all levels of pretension, this newest version of the godfather of glam is a simple man, with simple emotions, expressed in a stunning album, full of lovingly written, fully original (and catchy) material. How could anyone have expected less?
