David Bowie is back and has announced that his first new album for over a decade will come out in March.

The iconic artist surprised fans by releasing the record's first single on Tuesday (January 8th) to mark his 66th birthday and the announcement has already sparked mass excitement among fans.

The single, Where Are We Now?, is available now to download on iTunes and the video has already hit the worldwide web, giving fans just a taste of what is to come when the full album is released.

Entitled The Next Day, the album has been produced by Tony Visconti, Bowie's long-time collaborator and will be unleashed in most countries, including the UK, on March 11th while the US will have to wait 24 hours more to get their hands on it.

An announcement on Bowie's official website read: "In recent years radio silence has been broken only by endless speculation, rumour and wishful thinking ....a new record...who would have ever thought it, who'd have ever dreamed it!"

Since the release of Where Are We Now? speculation has been rife about whether Bowie will be performing at this year's Glastonbury festival, but nothing has been mentioned about specific appearances.
