According to the The Times of London, the legendary David Bowie will release a brand new album called Blackstar on January 8th, his 69th birthday.
The album, Bowie’s 25th to date, contains seven tracks spanning 45 minutes, recorded at the Magic Shop in New York City with a group of jazz musicians. “Blackstar may be the oddest work yet from [Bowie],” The Times states.
The title track also serves as the lead single and will be released on November 19th. According to The Times, “Blackstar” has a running time of 10 minutes and contains “Gregorian chants, a soul section, various electronic beat and bleeps, and Bowie’s distinctive vocals. There is no radio edit; it’s all or nothing.” The Legend is back!
