David Bowie: il nuovo album


Il nuovo brano dentro ‘The Last Panthers‘, quindi la voce (vera?) di un ritiro live, infine l’annuncio del nuovo album ‘Blackstar’ che arriverà l’8 gennaio, giorno del compleanno numero 69. Tre anni dopo il capolavoro ‘The Next Day’, il capitolo 25 di una storia infinita, sarà anticipato il 20 novembre dalla pubblicazione della titletrack/singolo. ‘Blackstar’ è stato registrato ai Magic Shop studio di New York assieme ad un gruppo di jazzisti locali. “He’s made an album of long, jazzy jams mixed with the kind of driving beat pioneered by Seventies German bands Can and Kraftwerk”. Grazie.

26 ottobre – La conferma ufficiale arriva 24 ore dopo.

It can now be confirmed that ‘Blackstar’ is the forthcoming single and album from David Bowie. Contrary to inaccurate reporting on the sound and content of the album, only the following can be confirmed: The single will be released on November 20th and is not part of David’s theatre piece ‘Lazarus’. The album will be released on David’s birthday, January 8th 2016.

23 novembreTony Visconti al Rolling Stone: “LCD Soundsystem founder James Murphy plays percussion on two tracks, though his role on the album was originally going to be much more significant. At one point we were talking about three producers for the album: David, James and myself. Murphy was there for a brief time, but he had his own projects to go off to. We were listening to a lot of Kendrick Lamar. We wound up with nothing like that, but we loved the fact Kendrick was so open-minded and he didn’t do a straight-up hip-hop record. He threw everything on there, and that’s exactly what we wanted to do. The goal, in many, many ways, was to avoid rock & roll.”

17 dicembre – Come annunciato qualche giorno fa ecco il nuovo singolo ‘Lazarus‘ lanciato in esclusiva mondiale da Steve Lamacq su BBC Radio 6 Music. Il 7 gennaio verrà invece presentato il nuovo video.

7 gennaio – Il video di ‘Lazarus‘ diretto da Johan Renck.


Look up here, I’m in heaven

I’ve got scars that can’t be seen

I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen

Everybody knows me now

Look up here, man, I’m in danger

I’ve got nothing left to lose

I’m so high it makes my brain whirl

Dropped my cell phone down below

Ain’t that just like me

By the time I got to New York

I was living like a king

Then I used up all my money

I was looking for your ass

This way or no way

You know, I’ll be free

Just like that bluebird

Now ain’t that just like me

Oh I’ll be free

Just like that bluebird

Oh I’ll be free

Ain’t that just like me
