"I'm fed up with the industry and I've been fed up for quite some time. I'm taking a year off, no touring, no albums. I go for a walk every morning, and I watch a ton of movies. One day, I watched three Woody Allen movies in a row".
That's the statement released by David Bowie explaining on his decision to take a break from music industry. As for you to know, Bowie has not released an album since his 2003's "Reality". And now that he has just faced a heart surgery he said it's time for him to take a break.
