Bowie Working on New Material in Berlin new [re: ]  

News links .... The Quietus and Undercover News

The news articles seem to be based on the original twitter message dated from JAN 5 - the one I reported here.

What I do not know (and still don't know) is whether the twitter user is genuine.

Hopefully there will be a positive consequence of this ... and that is Bowie might feel obliged to either CONFIRM or DENY whether he is working on new material or even thinking about doing so.

It looks like those websites are relying on the Twitter comment and nothing else:

Here's a weblink to a site that apparently confirms he's NOT recording.

Hearing from other Bowie fans that radio stations are starting to say he's recording and Johnathan Ross has confirmed it. But all this based on Twitter? How strange.

This of course could be a hoax, since Twitter doesn't exactly verify people's identities .

Re: Bowie Working on New Material in Berlin new [re: Adam]  

Obvious hoax, and I think it just confirms how not a big deal Twitter is that the Bowie camp doesn't even feel the need to comment.

I think what Adam was talking about - him confirming or denying working on new material - is exactly why he isn't commenting. And I think that's also a good indication that he is not working on new material. Since when has Bowie not wanted buzz behind an album?

Conversely, there's some slim silver lining in the fact that he hasn't denied working on new material (either in response to this or otherwise) - obviously he isn't, but letting it remain ambiguous helps him maintain a little bit more fan interest. If he still cares about fan interest, maybe he is still thinking about doing a new album in the future. Or at least wants to keep the option open.

But at this point, I do feel it's likely that Bowie is done.

Non importa quanto si aspetta,ma chi si aspetta.

BNet: "While we're about it, David Bowie does not have a Twitter account."

Why won't it die?

Re: Bowie Working on New Material in Berlin new [re: Adam]  

Being that the music "industry" is now a corpse and Bowie
is one of the richest musicians on the planet I don't understand
why he doesn't just release occasional songs/material on the
internet, minus all the record company/promotional requirements
or (seriously) BUY a commercial radio station or satellite radio
station and play his favorite music from the past and present
(including his own).

Culture, along with the economy, is dying fast....I wish Bowie or
someone like McCartney would actually contribute something
truly groundbreaking like a FREE-FORM radio station. The only
cutting edge, free-form BOWIE worshipping station in LA just
went belly up, refusing to play more "commercial material"....
I mean...why some ridiculously rich musicians sit back & "sigh"
over the death of the music industry when they could LITERALLY
buy up stations, self-publish magazines/music. Doesn't it seem
strange to have a musician like Bowie not making any more music
videos because "they wouldn't get played anyways" when he
could just purchase a station on cable, etc.....!!??
...just needed to rant.....

He also said because there's no money in it anymore. Which is a bit sad and I hope he was half joking. I mean every person should be allowed to make money from their endeavours, but the music video is like a short piece of seemingly spontaneous creativity, where you could practically be as creative as you want to be regardless of the music. He used to think that way with music videos... but just because people don't play them or there's no money in it, it doesn't mean he doesn't have to shine in his own creative fervour. He should just embrace the music video again and say "fuck you" to MTV. Just make them to be creative...that's what produces really groundbreaking stuff, like Ashes To Ashes... yes or possibly really shit stuff like Day In Day Out. But either way, just go for it Bowie for crying out loud... Where's that spirit he used to have? (No not the vodka).

Re: Bowie Working on New Material in Berlin new [re: Chinchilla]  

I recall even Thursday's Child being played on MTV... they played Survive on kids music show CD:UK!!
In fact... they previewed the New Killer Star video on CD:UK as well.
He's just got lazy when it comes to videos.

Of course no one will play his videos when he isn't making any but even the later videos got a fair bit of airplay.
