The NEW Bowie album  

This was posted today on Bowienet and then on BWW ( or vice versa ), so what do you think? exciting prospect at last, we've waited long enough, plus I want to be proved wrong eh Alan?

The post...

Posted today at BA by ddogs;-

a user from the velvetgoldmine.it forum (italian fansite) posted today that the boss of Tomlab (www.tomlab.com) said to him that violinist Owen Pallett (known as 'Final Fantasy' and collaborator/shift worker of Arcade Fire) will take care of strings arrangement of the new David Bowie album!!

Re: The NEW Bowie album new [re: diamondogz74]  

That's some handing down of info.

It's certainly possible that the first rumblings will be from musos he intends to hire. IIRC, this was the case with Heathen and even though some of the initial suggestions (eg: Robert Fripp via his wife's online diary) never panned out, the album eventually did.

Fripp was approached for Heathen? I don't recall hearing that before! Do you realize what a killer album that could have been?

On the original topic... thanks for sharing the interesting news, Dogz.

The reunion that never happened new [re: Emil]  

The Fripp rumour goes back a long time - to Feb, 2001 which in itself indicates that such rumours can happen a long way before release dates.

Teenage Wildlife News

February 7: (RUMOUR)

Is there a chance that Bowie may once again work with legendary guitarist Robert Fripp (the guitarist on "Heroes" and much of the Scary Monsters album)? Yes, according to Robert Fripp's wife, Toyah Willcox who writes in her online diary entry of December 14 that:

"It looks like I will be spending a bit of time in New York over next year as I have film interests going on and Robert is in talks to possibly do some work with David Bowie, who lives there. I must say I wont be complaining about it, I love the place, it is inspiring and mad. My intention is to hop between England and NY on a regular basis."

This ties in with an entry in Robert Fripp's diary from a couple of months ago (no longer available on the Web) that Fripp had run into Bowie while he was in New York on the final stages of the King Crimson 2000 tour.

Visconti, Fripp, Bowie? Can Eno be far behind?

Nice to hear... Hope something comes out of that!

I'm starting to think we're all really pathetic. We're just waiting and hoping and when ever anything, no matter how small, piece of information comes up, everyone gets excited. Of course I also hope that Bowie releases a new album soon. But still. Think about how many albums Bowie's made during his career. Much more than many other artists. So, I don't really know why he should feel any pressure to make a new album soon. Perhaps we should just give him some time.

True. Although Bowie may never shatter the phrase 'best since Scary Monsters', nothing can justify the atrocities of the former Beatles post 1980. At least it's been amusing to see how much people can cling to the past.

Re: The NEW Bowie album new [re: diamondogz74]  

Let's face it, the coolest things Bowie's done in the past five years or so, are the slower, more ballad type songs such as Sunday, Slip away, Loneliest Guy and Nature Boy. In my opinion, Bjork herself should produce the next Bowie album, now THAT would be an event. The bass-drum-guitar-keyboard stuff of Reality is old hat, and I welcome even a hint of news at a different musicial direction: strings, violins and maybe even a theremin. I'll bet his next work will be quieter, introspective, a moody late career masterwork. We all know he's still capable of it.

They are? Funny, I hadn't noticed.

OK, in the name of all fairness, I do adore 5:15 The Angels Have Gone as well as I Would Be Your Slave, but apart from those I've found Bowie's ballady stuff from this decade to be somewhat disappointing. I don't think there really is a huge difference on the good ballads / good non-ballads ratio on this decade compared to the previous ones. However, if he does make a ballad album (preferrably without Björk though), I'd certainly welcome it.

That's a dream of mine.

Anyway, I'd like Bowie to abandon that safe pop rock sound. Heathen was adventurous (Slave, A Better Future) but Reality was David playing it safe. And while he's still capable of producing brilliant "classic" songs (like NKS, Never Get Old, Disco King..), I'd rather hear his 21st century Lodger. C'mon, he's been sucking interesting new bands like a vampire, there has to be something interesting left in the experimental department of his brain.

I would much prefer Bowie to do songs like Sunday, 5:15 The Angels Have Gone, The Loneliest Guy and Bring Me The Disco King over such songs as Never Get Old and New Killer Star. That’s my preference but obviously not yours. As a fan, I miss the ‘95 - ‘97 Bowie. Outside and Earthling; what a wonderful time to be a Bowie fan.

I thought Simon House was one of the best things about Stage. Something about the way electric violin meshes with conventional rock instrumentation and unconventional songwriting seems to give the rockers more intensity (see: Beauty And The Beast) and the slow songs more resonance (see: Warzawa). Simply put, it just sounds neat.

There's a difference between slow and textured and Moody and slow and bland. Bowie fought a battle getting rid of Mr Collins's fan base. Don't want them to start coming here.

Anyway I believe I said how good it would be that he would do a chill out type of album. Now its look like it could have one. i don't think it's far fetched. I find that him doing a Bruce Lee musical is even more bizzare.

Re: "I've met him, remember" new [re: Tristan]  

All I want is a bit of diversity, an album full of the songs you mention, would be a thing of beauty but it would be too samey, you need some faster songs to make it interesting or it would just blur.

Regarding Bjork, that was just a ploy to get a response, no, what I mean is, I would prefer him to work with someone we had never heard of, so that he could get something new from it and maybe introduce us to someone worthwhile. We know Bjork and what she can do, and any collaboration would be contrived and possibly a compromise on both parts.
You talk of Ouside and Earthling, I don't recall too many slow songs on the latter, it is this era that I would like to see a return to, if not in actual muscial content (been there/done that) but in attitude, making music because he wants to and enjoys it, rather than a set of songs he knows he has to take around the world with him.

Just to reiterate, I like the slower songs (although Loneliest guy and BMTDK are overrated I feel) but like a mixture of songs. Where would Young Americans be without the faster songs, it would be a hard slog, not because the slower songs are bad, but because you don't want to be listening to 10 songs all in the same tempo.

We don't want another show album ( although I truly adore both Heathen and Reality ) granted an entire album of slow songs is not what we want ( I was teasing you with TM ) anyway aren't most albums a mixture of ballad and rock, when mentioning Bowie.

I'm not the one who wants them to work together. I would prefer Bjork to get busy with her own project. I will say, and it's only my opinion, that Bjork's work since 1993 surpasses that of Bowie for the same time period with maybe the exception of 95 - 97, which I would say is about equeal.

I'd like stuff similar to that era too, but what exactly do we want from that kind of era?

Is it the style of music? the hair (!) ? or just the motivation he had back then (2 albums released barely 18 months apart with some great music videos/singles, a long tour in between and a Birthday bash)

I guess Pablo is right in that, Bowie has never been one to really repeat himself, so it would be more in how he creates music rather than the content.

In reply to:

I'm not the one who wants them to work together. I would prefer Bjork to get busy with her own project. I will say, and it's only my opinion, that Bjork's work since 1993 surpasses that of Bowie for the same time period with maybe the exception of 95 - 97, which I would say is about equeal.


I agree but recently with Medulla, she's lost the plot completely.

It is that kind of edgy thread, I just couldn't understand why you considered this rumour as too far fetched? surely as Adam pointed out, It's going to be the musicians who let things out first, I personally think this rumour is true.

It maybe true as you say. He's due to go back in studio anyway. In the last 25 years he's not been very productive following a major tour, so time's up David, come on out!!

No, you've lost the plot completely. Listen to it again, alone and loud. If "Desired Constellation" doesn't make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, I'll slap a baby harp seal up side the head just for you. Ok, that, I was kidding, but you really should give Medulla a few more spins.

Utter rubbish. I can understand how it is an album to divide up the fans but it is certainly a very focussed and innovative work by one of the best voices in the world. Hardly losing the plot, perhaps she just lost you?? Have another listen.

In reply to:

I whole album would not work but a collaboration could be awesome. just imagine both anarchic voices, she domoinationg the higher notes, he grumbling in the lower part. though I would still prefer a Tom Waits/Björk collaboration...

Conerning Medulla - I liked the attempt but in some parts it just sounds too much like a musical art class in evening school. I prefer the single versions of the released songs. Making pop-music is always a compromise between creating something new and creating something which is listenable. the art is to get both. to use ones full artistic control just to release something which hasn't been done before, because nobody would buy it without the big name on the cover is not really innovative.

However - there are some cool tracks on it which work perfectly on the two different levels. and also I like her philosophy of being the anti-madonna which proves that female artists could be more than dancing pairs of titts.

Ok OK cool off everyone, I wound up on a Bjork board or what???
You're right she's lost me. By the way my 5 year old daughter is a Bjork fan, that should level things up with me? She sings Joga and the song right after , I forgot the name. Every morning when we drive to school!! Next weekend I will show her Bjork videos, I have the DVD compilation, I even bought her biography. so you see I'm not hostile towards her, it's a bit like when Bowie came out with Earthling, he lost me temporarely.

We're not talking "another day in paradise" crap. We're talking Lady Grinning Soul, Wild is the wind, Win, Slip Away,
side 2 of low, the motel, 5:15 Angels, the wedding, America etc.
Bowie declared rock a "toothless old woman" in 1975, and now she's 31 years older. His more recent "ballads" have been sucessful than the "rockers", that's all I'm saying. One of the more spine tingling moments (for me, anyway) on the Reality tour was the minimal "Loving the Alien". Same goes with his "Life On Mars"at fashion rocks with only Garson.
Rockers do not showcase his phenomenal voice and now is the point in his career to do exactly that, out of the standerd rock format, but without the schmaltz-faux-sinatra garbage that other maturing (i.e Rod Stewart, et. al) are resorting to.

Re: Medulla new [re: kalamazoo]  

Good and even great art confounds. If you put on Medulla and expected Debut, you've missed a big part of the journey.
Comparatively,it's the same musical distance from Hunky Dory to Low. Great artists, from Picasso to Bjork, weren't/aren't afraid stray from the pack.

So of course he converted me. I could name all th Bjork albums, most songs on the albums, etc.
Just to show you what kind of a fan I am...

Bjork stalking new [re: kintanofan]  

BJORK PLANS ROUND-THE-WORLD VOYAGE
November 30, 2005

Iceland pop star Bjork is training to fulfill her ambition of sailing around the world.
The singer is currently taking a 10-week course to captain a 30 ton boat, and when completed she will embark on an epic journey with her boyfriend Matthew Barney and their three-year-old daughter Isadora.
She says, "It has always been my ambition. I have homes all over the place at the moment - Iceland, England and France - but I'd love for my home to be a boat so that I can take it wherever I go.
"The course I'm taking tests whether I have the balls to do this. So I'm having to work hard and behave myself. My life's always changing - I'm constantly looking for new things. I'm never still. My theory is that life on a boat could be great."

------------------------------------------------------

I don't think she's had time yet. She was in Reykjavik for Christmas and New Year plus she performed 3 songs at a nature benefit concert in Reykjavik on January 7, 2006. Then she traveled with UNICEF UK to Banda Aceh in Indonesia to view some of UNICEF's work with children affected by the Asian tsunami. She was taken there by Unicef as a goodwill ambassador. In March she was spotted at the Magic Kingdom at Disney World in Florida with her daughter Isadora and at the New York premiere of DR9.
I don't think she's had time to do her little sea venture. And it's funny to read in the artical above that she's behaving herself. She spent New Years Eve getting drunk with Quentin Tarantino. You can read about that in the artical below.

----------------------------------------------------

From World Entertainment News Network

Movie-maker QUENTIN TARANTINO is convinced he has tasted poison after sampling Iceland's favourite alcohol over New Year.

The KILL BILL director joined pal BJORK and friends in Iceland to ring in 2006 and now he can't get the taste of awful, intoxicating licorice out of his mouth.

He says, "I don't really know what poison tastes like, because if I did I'd be dead, but, if I had to imagine what poison would taste like, it would be this stuff Opal.

"It's based on this candy that the Icelanders have eaten since they were a little kid, so they're used to the taste, so they love it.

"I was in this club and Bjork was there and she grabs me up to the bar and (the bartender) sets up like three shots... My gag reflex was doing a decathlon at that point.

"This stuff is so foul that I said what I never thought I'd ever say in my life - when it came down to the fourth shot I go, 'Can I switch to Jagermeister (hardcore herb liquor), just for the taste?'"
