It turns out you don’t have to wait until “the next day” to hear David Bowie’s widely touted new release The Next Day. Although the album doesn’t drop until March 12, iTunes will be streaming the entire album for free until the release date.
Bowie first surprised the world on his 66th birthday back in January with the announcement of his first new album in over a decade, accompanied by the release of the album’s lead single “Where Are We Now,” followed more recently by “The Stars (Are Out Tonight).” Now, the shroud of secrecy is completely removed, and the world can hear what Bowie has been up to, even before the record is available for sale.
Watch for a review of The Next Day here soon. Meanwhile, check out the videos below, and go on over to iTunes to hear the whole album.
