Written in New York and produced by longtime collaborator Tony Visconti, the album marks Bowie’s 24th to date and first since 2003’s Reality. While the elusive songwriter has remained mum, Visconti has been quite candid and recently told the BBC he’s personally been listening to the album “for the past two years, and I have not tired of a single song.”
He added, “I think the material on this album is extremely strong and beautiful, and if people are looking for classic Bowie theyll find it on this album, if theyre looking for innovative Bowie, new directions, theyre going to find that on this album too.
The Next Day officially hits stores March 12th via Columbia Records (pre-orders are ongoing). Below, watch the video for the album’s latest single, The Stars (Are Out Tonight), which stars Bowie himself and Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton.
