Why you should listen to the new David Bowie album when it comes out next year
David Bowie is making an unlikely comeback after a 15-year hiatus, and a new album will be released in January 2018.
The former glam rocker has been releasing tracks as a collaboration with former bandmate Tom Morello for the past two years, with the release of the third album being the latest.
“I have this new album coming out in January,” Bowie told the crowd at a concert in London on Sunday night.
“It’s called ‘Foolish Heart’,” he said, to cheers.
“Foolishly Heart” is also being released as a free download on Spotify.
It’s Bowie’s first new album since 2010’s “Sleeper”, which he also co-produced.
“Sleepless in Seattle”, Bowie’s third album, was released in 2017.
Bowie also revealed that he has been diagnosed with the “viral brain disease” cystic fibrosis, which has caused a range of health problems, including a heart attack, heart valve failure and a range on the lungs.
His wife Carrie Fisher, who died in 2015, is the first celebrity to receive the disease.
He has also been a vocal supporter of the ALS Association, the US-based organisation behind the ALS research.
The singer and songwriter has battled depression, which he said “makes you do stupid things”.
The singer was diagnosed with cystic Fibrosis in 2013.
“A lot of people get sick and die, and I’ve lost a lot of friends, so it’s a tough time for me,” Bowie said.
“And don’t give up, keep going.” “
