Blood Brothers Count Down Day 15 of 28 - The Wonderful Mr Bowie nominated for the Barclaycard Mercury Prize for The Next Day
My new novel, Blood Brothers, is to be launched on 1st October. This is day 15 of the countdown to the launch.
I wrote on Day 4 about the wonderful David Bowie - here is the link http://bloodbrothersthenovel.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/blood-brothers-count-down-day-4-or-28.html
David Bowie had had a ten year hiatus from music before launching his 2013 album,The Next Day. But clearly he has still got it. The album has been nominated for the Barclaycard Mercury Prize.
The Next Day is considered one of the best releases from the last year and could take home the prestigious award this October.
Not only is he the oldest nominee at 66-years old in the 2013 list, but also in the history of the Mercury Music prize, sharing the honour with Jazz pianist Stan Tracey who was the same age as Bowie when he was nominated for Portraits Plus in 1999
