David Bowie “Golden Years”

There’s a story in Musical Notes today, about David Bowie, and how he’s suddenly gone silent.

Bowie has put out an album, or at least a single, pretty much every year, since the late 60s. But since his 2003 full length and the tour to follow, he’s been off the road and he hasn’t put out a new record (not counting reissues).

Pretty striking, for someone who’s output continued at a steady clip for 3 decades.

And the article suggests that nothing is imminent from Bowie, which is why the piece leads with a lyric from “Golden Years.”

So if Bowie kinda stops, can we expect “Run for the shadows in these Golden Years” to appear in any Bowie mention?
