Have you seen this? David Bowie is putting out a new album, Blackstar (due out January 8), and released this nearly 10-minute long short film a few days ago as the first single. If this video is any indication of what’s to come, we are no doubt in for a sweeping and cinematic saga ripe with genre-defying sounds, dark and mystical allusions and the inimitable Bowie oddness that has been alluring audiences for over 50 years. I’m as awed as I’ve ever been with this rock icon who continues to be at the vanguard of musical innovation and exploration. See/listen for yourself.
