NEW YORK (AP) -- David Bowie is celebrating his birthday by releasing new music.

The English singer announced Tuesday, his 66th birthday, that he has released his first song in 10 years titled “Where Are We Now?”

A new album, “The Next Day,” will be out March 11 and 12 in the United Kingdom and the United States, respectively.

The slow groove was released on iTunes and in 119 countries. It was produced by longtime collaborator Tony Visconti.

Bowie’s last album was 2003’s “Reality.” The fashion forward singer debuted in the 1960s, releasing multiple successful albums with sounds that range from rock to pop to glam rock to soul and funk.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s hits include “Let’s Dance,” ‘’China Girl,” ‘’Fame” and “Dancing In the Street.”
