David Bowie

Anyone waiting for a new album or tour from David Bowie might want to occupy themselves with something else for a bit, if claims made by the the author of a new book on the musician are true.

Speaking to Spinner about his new book, ‘David Bowie: Starman’, former editor in chief at Mojo, Paul Trynka said: “My heart says he’ll come back, [but] my head says he’s likely not to. I think he would only come back if he thinks he could deliver something that will be seismic. If you pop back into the stage, it’s got to be something that has a big explosion and lots of flashes. It would be a bit of a miracle if he comes back, but miracles do happen”.

Bowie has not released a new studio album since 2003’s ‘Reality’, and has not performed live since November 2006 when he performed a duet with Alicia Keys at her Black ball event in New York, which raised money for AIDS orphans in Africa. He completed his last full tour in 2004.
