David Bowie, 'The Next Day' (March 12th)
Bowie began recording his first LP in a decade at his New York home studio two and a half years ago before calling in longtime producer Tony Visconti (Heroes, Young Americans). While the single "Where Are We Now" is a mellow reflection of Bowie's Berlin years, Visconti tells Rolling Stone, "That's the only song in that style. Five of the songs are rockers. The others are more funky, medium tempo. Very evocative. The second song, 'Dirty Boys' is sleazy – it wouldn't have sounded out of place on Young Americans."
