David Bowie's first album in a decade has become the fastest selling of the year, hitting the number one spot in its first week. The Next Day is the 66-year-old's first number one since 1993.
On January 8th, his birthday—and mine, he released a new single, Where Are We Now. I didn't hear about it at the time. When I saw a clip on the news channel, I listened enraptured, then hopped over to Youtube so I could share the single with you.
I won't be buying the new album—finances don't allow such luxury. But I wish David Bowie every success. Long ago, I read about his charitable endeavors and becoming a patron of a London boys' home. Anyone who shares the wealth they make from their God given talent has my admiration.
Sing on, David.
