Ten years after his last album, David Bowie is back – and so is his swagger.
Forget the moody musings of "Where Are We Now?" – the reflective comeback single that he dropped, seemingly out of nowhere, on his Jan. 8 birthday. The Next Day – which, though not released until March 12, began streaming in its entirety on iTunes on Friday – represents much more of an emphatic, energetic return from the 66-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.

"Where Are We Now?" ponders a plaintive David Bowie on his comeback single after seemingly retiring from music. Indeed, this august, atmospheric ballad previews his first album in 10 years, The Next Day, due out March 12.
Out of nowhere the song was dropped in the middle of the night on Jan. 8 – which just happens to be Bowie's birthday (he turned 66). The low-key release certainly suits the understated tone of the tune, which is hardly the splashy comeback one might have expected from the glam god who was once Ziggy Stardust.
Instead, Bowie plays the reflective elder statesman dispensing some existential lyrics: "The moment you know, you know you know."

February 18, 2004START SPREADING THE NEWS ... Even though Kylie Minogue is a pop diva and international celeb, she still felt the significance of her first New York City appearance, a six-song set at the club Avalon during a party for the new Queer Eye for the Straight Guy CD. "It's taken me 17 years, but I'm finally here New York," Minogue told the exuberant crowd of 3,000. This is certainly just the beginning of her Big Apple experiences, however. Before launching into her Grammy-winning single, "Come into My World," she said of her set: "This is just a taster."
