David Bowie to release new song 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)' on February 26
David Bowie is set to release a brand new track titled 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)' on February 26.
The singer, who will release his first new album in 10 years in March, posted a message on his official Facebook page at midnight February 17. The post did not include any concrete release details, but instead simply listed the date '02.26.13' and the title of the song along with a new picture, which you can see at the top of the page.
Bowie shocked fans and the media alike on January 8 of this year – his 66th birthday – when he broke his decade-long musical silence by unveiling a brand new track and accompanying video, 'Where Are We Now?', and announced that a new album, titled 'The Next Day', would follow in March.
The album has been produced by Bowie's longtime collaborator Tony Visconti and will be released in the UK and most countries worldwide on March 11. Australia will get the record three days earlier on March 8, while American fans will have to wait until March 12.
