    Bowie just released his first new music in 10 years. I think it's a great song, but I'm a big Bowie fan. He seems to be sporting a new wig in the video too...it doesn't look terribly convincing. Still gotta love the Thin White Duke though!

    I love Bowie, though he will always be #2 to Bolan in my book. I actually do like the song though, but then again I even liked Tin Machine.

    I don't think he wears a wig, I never saw him going bald, I think he's blessed with good hair.

    I'll never forget the weird shit that his ex-wife wrote in her book about what they went through in LA... among other weird shit, Bowie tried to exorcise a motherfucking DEMON from their pool! It was one of those WTF things.

    i refuse to believe it's a wig.

    i've never seen him with a receding hairline and i've searched photographs of him extensively.

    Someone's looking for a some hipster-cred by name checking every obscure locale in Europe.

    I don't know about that. I think Bowie is just rattling off his old haunts from the years he lived in Berlin back in the 70s. I believe today is his 66th birthday, and he apparently released this video this morning...probably just a meditation on how old he is.

    Thanks so much for posting - I love Bowie, too, so I wanted to see the video. I like the "mood" of the song but I wish it wasn't quite so slooow. I liked the way the video ends.

    Me, too!

    Also NO WAY that is a wig. He's always had great hair.

    For fellow Bowie and Bolan fans, check out this video: it's from the last episode of Bolan's T.V. show, 9 days before he died in a car accident.

    EDIT: Found full video.

    I really do love Bowie (no homo), but I'm telling you he wears some kind of wig or weave. Not that I give a shit...he's not putting anybody else down for it like Howard. Plus Bowie only slightly sold-out by releasing Let's Dance and Blue Jean; all of his other stuff is like top-shelf liquor. Especially the Berlin-era stuff with Eno.

    I listened to Heathen the other day and was reminded how good it is...this song sounds like something that would have fit nicely on that album. I think his hair is real as I also don't remember ever seeing any evidence of thinning.

    Always loved Bowie. I actually see him from time to time. He frequents Dean and Deluca in SOHO usually around 10:30 in the morning. Buys pastries and coffee. Only a keen eye would know it's him. He walks around with a cap on with a long coat and always has a very pleasant demeanor.(often smiling) Once in a while I see his wife there but oddly enough never together.He lives only a a block away on Lafyette street

    Thanks for posting the vid.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who had trouble with a haunted pool. When I lived in Atlanta, I rented a house with a huge in-ground pool. One Saturday I get home from Boy Scout Camp Jamboree, and there is this 5' demon in shorts bent over the pool pump. Well, I commenced to yelling and hitting the demon with deck chairs, and he put up an awful fight. The demon's tools of evil were flying from his little demon tool belt, and he was screaming in Latin "Nomas! Nomas!" which I think means "Hell" so I just kept on swinging away.

    I stayed away from the pool after that.
