David Bowie’s albums zoom up the chart after the release of ‘Where Are We Now?’

David Bowie's off to a good start this week: his classic albums are racing up the download charts.

Bowie made his comeback yesterday when he unveiled 'Where Are We Now?', which shot to number one in just half a day. But his comeback successes don't stop there as 'The Best Of Bowie' moves to seven on the iTunes chart.

And even though his new album 'The Next Day' isn't out until March 12, he's iTunes' top-selling album on pre-orders alone. Pretty impressive stuff for a man who's been away for a decade.

"The thing with Bowie, as with any chart icon, is that when people are reminded of the brilliance of his music, they want to listen to it again," HMV's Gennaro Castaldo told The Independent.

"And alongside his original followers still enjoying his albums on CD and vinyl, his songs are now just a download away for a whole new generation of potential fans that are out there, so we can expect an explosion of interest in 2013."

'Where Are We Now?' is out now.
