Indeed, so much was the immediate excitement at the somewhat sudden news that a new David Bowie album was incoming and the first single from it was already available on iTunes, even Radio 4’s ‘Today’ programme was planning on playing the new track.

That single is called ‘Where Are We Now?’, and surfaced on the Apple download store in 119 countries in the early hours of the morning. It appears alongside no less than sixteen other tracks on the new album. ‘The Next Day’, which can be pre-ordered on iTunes already, and which has a provisional release date of 12 Mar.

The new track has been produced by long-term collaborator Tony Visconti, and the video for it can be seen here.
