Out of nowhere once again, David Bowie has announced a new album and dropped the first song from it, the title track Blackstar. Not only that but the video for the song is a beautifully shot mini-movie which is exceptional on every level.
You can listen to the song and watch the video right here:
After listening to the song for the first time you can’t help but be blown away by the overwhelming magnificence. The song starts in a dark vein before shifting to what sounds like a completely different song, and that middle section is absolutely exquisite. Classic Bowie. After the middle section finishes the song ends in the same style as the opening and at 10 minutes in length, it’s majestic on every level.
The video itself is on par with the quality of the song, and you get the feeling when you watch and listen that you’re being taken on a musical journey. It could only be David Bowie and one can only wonder what other gems his new album will contain.
