The Next Day is David Bowie's first album in a decade. Recorded beneath a veil of secrecy, it dropped in March and immediately spawned hits on the UK single, album, and iTunes charts.

Most musicians would immediately launch a whirlwind global tour and give nonstop press interviews, but this is David Bowie. Which means the world has not heard one peep about the album from its maker. Until now.

Celebrated author Rick Moody (The Ice Storm) contacted Bowie about the album: 

"I simply asked if he would provide this list of words about his album, assuming, like everyone else waving madly trying to get his attention, that there was not a chance in hell that I would get this list."

But he did!! In 42 words, here's what Bowie has to say about his latest album. Crack open those dictionaries, everyone!
