Do you know who the kid in the above photo is? He recently celebrated his birthday with some very big news.

Our mystery kid has been one of the most popular rockers on the planet since the '70s. He actually got his start in the late '60s with a folk record that almost nobody heard. A few years, and a few stylistic changes, later, he took on a completely new persona and became a global star.

In the '70s he released some of the best and most influential albums ever recorded. He's influenced everyone from punks and goths to dance artists and indie rockers. His most recent record came out 10 years ago. But he recently announced that a new album -- which he recorded in secret -- is all ready and will be released in a few weeks. The first single from the much-anticipated LP is now available.
