EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded under a veil of absolute secrecy by Bowie and longtime creative partner Tony Visconti, 2013's The Next Day is a thrilling, musically varied comeback. The unabashed rock of the title track sets a no-nonsense tone furthered by the moody funk of "Dirty Boys" and the rattling, high-octane "If You Can See Me." The sweeping, cinematic "Where Are We Now?" and the introspective atmosphere of "Heat" add a hard-earned poignancy, while the careening "I'd Rather Be High" shows he'd lost none of his experimental attitude.

About David Bowie

Everyone has a David Bowie that they fell in love with first—the otherworldly outsider Ziggy Stardust, the electronic adventurer, the wild-eyed glam pioneer, the enigmatic storyteller. But it was Bowie's ability to reinvent himself so vividly that captivated us again and again. Driven by boundless imagination, David Bowie was a multifaceted music icon, a social provocateur, a force in fashion, and a gifted actor whose unique personas and perspectives traveled with him through the decades. From the moment his homesick astronaut captured the spotlight in the late ‘60s to his exploratory, jazz-influenced Blackstar almost 50 years later, he excelled and innovated with turns in pop, glam, punk, soul, hard rock, and electronic music. And even though Bowie released vital albums throughout his life—and will forever embody the most artful edge of rock ’n’ roll—he was more than just the music he made. Bowie's fearlessness inspired us to celebrate the complexity and beauty of being completely ourselves.
