Adding to the euphoria of yesterday's announcement concerning David Bowie's new record, long time friend and producer of the Thin White Duke, Tony Visconti has revealed to the BBC that the new record is "classic Bowie" and warns fans not to be thrown by The Next Day lead single 'Where We Are Now' and that the album is in fact "quite a rock album."

"I think it’s a very reflective track for David," he said. "He certainly is looking back on his Berlin period, and it evokes this feeling that he has. It's very melancholy, I think. It’s the only track on the album that goes this much inward for him. But he is a master of his own life. I think this was a very wise move, to link up the past with the future, and I think the next thing you hear from him is going to be quite different.”
