David Bowie is back after ten years and I’m obviously really excited about it. So is Noel Gallagher of Oasis who said Bowie’s new record “blew his mind.” Anyone remember when Oasis was dubbed “The New Beatles”? LOL FOREVER AND MORE.
NME asked Mr. Gallagher what he thought of Sir Bowie’s latest album, The Next Day:
It’s great to hear his voice singing something new. The more you hear Where Are We Now? [the first single] the better it gets. The video’s mad – like his f-cking cat directed it.
Perfect description of the video, which freaks me out to no end. Gallagher is psyched by the idea of established artists producing new work that excites people.
If you had turned on the news and it had said, ‘David Bowie is to do a f-cking series of concerts next year,’ everyone would have gone, ‘Oh great, can’t wait, that’s it, let’s talk about something else.’ But we’re still talking about that song. New music and records rule, but reunions for gigs are shit, you know.
So I guess that means we won’t see an Oasis reunion anytime soon.
Here’s the creepy video for Sir Bowie’s first single, Where Are We Now?
And for a palate cleanser, here’s a gif of someone putting a kitten on David Bowie’s head.
