the return of the thin white duke


Until I heard yesterday’s announcement that David Bowie is planning to release an new album, I had been half-thinking that he had secretly died sometime during his last decade of relative silence. Thank goodness this isn’t the case and here’s hoping that the new material will be at least up to snuff with where he left off 10 years ago because if I recall correctly he was on something of a tear. The new single seems like a good start.
