Watch The New Full Video By David Bowie – Lazarus
Blackstar (stylised as ★) is the upcoming twenty-fifth studio album by David Bowie. It is scheduled to be released on 8 January 2016, the date of Bowie’s 69th birthday, and will feature seven songs. The title track was released as a single on 20 November 2015 and was used as the opening music for the television series The Last Panthers. “Lazarus” was released on 17 December 2015 as a digital download and received its world premiere on BBC Radio 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq the same day.
Bowie began writing and making demos for songs that appear on Blackstar as soon as sessions for The Next Day concluded. The two songs that appear onBlackstar that were previously released, “Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)” and “‘Tis a Pity She Was a Whore”, were re-recorded for Blackstar, including new saxophone parts played on the latter song by Donny McClasin (replacing parts Bowie played on the original release).
