David Bowie’s new album Blackstar comes out on Friday (his 69th birthday). I’ve only heard a couple of songs from it, but so far it sounds like a very cool, very original, very ‘Bowie’ piece of work. He’s just released the video for the song Lazarus, and after 2 listens I was hooked. There’s nothing that overtly jumps out about the song to me, it’s mostly subtleties like the pick sound on the bass line, and the general ‘vibe’ of the song as a whole. But there’s something about it that has me absolutely transfixed right now. Take a listen and let me know what you think.
