David Bowie made us wait a decade for 'The Next Day,' his forthcoming 24th studio album, but with 11 days to go until the March 12 release, he won't keep us in suspense any longer. Bowie is streaming the 'The Next Day' in full on iTunes, giving curious fans a long-awaited taste of what he's been up to over the last 10 years.

Bowie's new album follows 2003's 'Reality,' and January's news of its imminent arrival came as something of a shockto thosewho'd figured the chameleon-like rock legend had either retired or fallen victim to serious illness.

'The Next Day' finds our still-vibrant hero mixing things up, jumping from ballads to up-tempo rockers and quelling the fears of anyone who thought the maudlin debut single, 'Where Are We Now?' was indicative of the disc's overall sound.

Spend some time with 'The Next Day,' then hit us up in the comments and let us know if you think it was worth the wait.
