David Bowie Has Exactly 42 Things To Say About His New Album

David Bowie

David Bowie has officially released his first statement in regards to his newest album, “The Next Day,” and it’s…interesting.  The glam rock icon was asked by novelist Rick Moody for a “sort of work flow diagram” of the album for an essay he was putting together, never expecting Bowie to actually respond.  Moody got the surprise of his life when the legend contacted him with a perfectly “Bowie” response:

Effigies
Indulgences
Anarchist
Violence
Chthonic
Intimidation
Vampyric
Pantheon
Succubus
Hostage
Transference
Identity
Mauer
Interface
Flitting
Isolation
Revenge
Osmosis
Crusade
Tyrant
Domination
Indifference
Miasma
Pressgang
Displaced
Flight
Resettlement
Funereal
Glide
Trace
Balkan
Burial
Reverse
Manipulate
Origin
Text
Traitor
Urban
Comeuppance
Tragic
Nerve
Mystification

Moody was thrilled with the contact, gushing that Bowie’s commentary was:

“really excellent, and exactly in the spirit of this album, and the list is far better than I could ever have hoped, and it’s exactly like Bowie, at least in my understanding of him: impulsive, intuitive, haunted, astringent and incredibly ambitious in the matter of the arts. Bowie is a conceptual artist, it seems to me, who just happens to work in the popular song, and he wants to make work that goes somewhere new, and this is amply demonstrated by the list.”

I completely agree, you can’t get much more deep and abstract than this!  What do you all think: are Bowie’s words understandable, or are you just as confused as ever?
