In honour of this mornings glorious, glorious news that David Bowie is releasing his first material in over 10 years, I am posting the video for his new single Where Are We Now. Because a) I was absolutely ecstatic to hear the news upon returning from swimming and switching on the kitchen radio. None of my flatmates were awake so I just danced really quickly on the spot and texted my Mum, the person responsible for my introduction to Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust and b) the video is a curious mix of Wings of Desire and.. Avid Merrion.
It also felt really lovely to wake up to good news. Usually waking up to a big news story is characterised by a death or a tragic event. But this time it was just a lot of really, really excited people making lots of noise about David Jones. Good to have you back, Mr Bowie.
