Mum’s 81st birthday today, plus David Bowie releases a single!!! Win Win!!

Well it was great to speak with my mum on her 81st birthday today 🙂

Today was also notable in that it’s David Bowie’s birthday and he released a new single…’ Where Are We Now’. I like it…a lot!!

There was also news that he will be releasing a studio album later in 2013 called ‘The Next Day’, his first in 10 years. Here’s the news link to the official website.

I’m playing a Bowie song on this Thursday’s show. A track from an OST…I’d be interested to know your guesses as to what song you think it is.

Here’s the official video: David Bowie ‘Where Are We Now?’
