David Bowie - David Bowie's 'stadium rock' single

David Bowie's new single is a ''stadium rock song''.

The musician will release 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)' - the second single from 'The Next Day', his first album in ten years - on February 26.

The track has been described by producer Tony Visconti as ''rocking out'' in contrast to the first song previewed from the album, the reflective 'Where Are We Now' .

Tony said: ''This one could be off [1972 album] 'Ziggy Stardust...' It's a big stadium rock song.''

Announcing the single release date, a post on David's Facebook page simply read '02.26.13' next to the title of the song and the picture to be used as its cover.

Describing the overall sound of the album, Tony has said it is reminiscent of other moments from David's back catalogue, including 1980s 'Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)' and 2002's 'Heathen'.

He said: ''Sonically, it's something in between 'Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)' and 'Heathen'.

''We actually played some unreleased 'Scary Monsters...' recordings and stuff from the 'Lodger' days [in 1979]. We tried to recreate them or update them, but instead we just got into the vibe.''

'The Next Day' will be released in March.

His first single "Where Are We Now" is cryptic. Is he literally showing us that the bottle is empty? This is my interpretation: https://sites.google.com/site/fasmusicvideowherearewenow/
