David Bowie To Reportedly Release New Album Blackstar In January


According to reports, David Bowie will release a new album entitled Blackstar on January 8. The Times notes that the LP contains seven songs which clock in at 45 minutes and "may well be the oddest work yet" from the Thin White Duke.

The paper also called it "an album of long, jazzy jams mixed with the kind of driving beat pioneered by '70s German bands Can and Kraftwerk."

An insider, speaking with the Times, called the record "completely bonkers."

The title track is scheduled to land on November 19. It will also feature in Lazarus, the musical Bowie is co-writing with Enda Walsh, as well as the theme for U.K. crime series The Last Panthers.

The release date floated for the album is also Bowie's 69th birthday.
