David Bowie: Black Star

We share the shock and sadness of the passing of David Bowie. 

On Friday January 8, we listened to his much anticipated new album, Blackstar

It’s rare to have such a massive release at the beginning of the year, but it was his 69th birthday;…so cool !  

The album’s title track is the first single, and is accompanied by a short film visual by the acclaimed director Johan Renck. The album features musical assistance from Tim Lefebvre, Mark Guiliana, Donny McCaslin, Ben Monder, Jason Lindner, James Murphy and longtime producer Tony Visconti. Blackstar features seven tracks including “‘Tis A Pity She Was A Whore”, “Lazarus”, “Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime” and the title track.
Bowie’s back ! 

Maybe he’ll tour again… 

Then we heard the news on Sunday night that he had died.
