David Bowie - After Two Decades, A Top Ten Hit For David Bowie's 'Where Are You Now?'

After initial confusion over whether or not David Bowie’s new single ‘Where Are You Now?’ was even chart eligible, the Thin White Duke has just scored his first Top Ten hit in nearly two decades. Such was the excitement of the star releasing his single unexpectedly on his 66th birthday, that thousands instantly bought the track online, sending it sailing into the Top Ten, were it ended the week in sixth position, Gigwise.com reports.

Initially, the song was considered ineligible for chart entry, as it had been offered free for anyone that pre-ordered a copy of David Bowie’s forthcoming album The Next Day. Only songs that have been paid for may enter the chart but eventually it was decided that the song would be eligible as long as a breakdown of paid-for and non paid-for tracks were provided to the chart company. Bowie’s producer Tony Visconti recently revealed that Bowie would possibly be performing a one-off concert in order to promote The Next Day but told fans not to expect a full tour. There has been a flurry of excitement amongst ticketholders for this year’s Glastonbury festival, with many speculating that Bowie is likely to perform. Other rumours regarding the festival include Fleetwood Mac and The Rolling Stones performing, too.

The number one spot was claimed by Will.i.am and Britney Spears’ track ‘Scream & Shout.’
