Reclusive singer David Bowie has broken his silence about his new album The Next Day by releasing a bizarre 42-word statement summing up the record.

The icon's comeback was announced on his website on January 8, the day of his 66th birthday, but Bowie has not commented directly on his return to music until now.

A writer for TheRumpus.net reached out to the Ashes to Ashes hitmaker for a "work flow diagram" on his new album, and the star replied with 42 words.

Violence, identity, isolation and tyrant are among the descriptions used, and writer Rick Moody turned Bowie's statement into an article of more than 12,000 words.
