Brilliant comeback from rock icon...
Age, mortality and reflections on the wild and sometimes complicated adventures of youth. These intertwining themes weigh heavily on David Bowie’s comeback album, from the artwork through the songs to the videos for ‘Where Are We Now?’ and ‘The Stars Are Out Tonight’. It is fascinating that an artist of Bowie’s stature – whose artistic growth has more or less paralleled the development of rock music as a medium – has chosen to tackle such heavyweight subjects in the autumn of a glittering career, and one of the exciting aspects of listening to The Next Day for the first time is to see what kind of conclusions he comes to.
