Today is David Bowie's 66th birthday, but to mark the occasion the singer has given his fans a gift in the form of a new song.

"Where Are We Now?," off his upcoming album The Next Day, has the Ziggy Stardust singer reminiscing about his time spent in Berlin during the '70s, a time in which Bowie recorded some of his most acclaimed work while rooming with Iggy Pop. 

Listen to his sombre new single below and order it on iTunes. The Next Day is expected to be released in March.
