Tunes for Tuesday: David Bowie’s “Blackstar”
Was Bowie’s last album, the first he’s released in many years, a little too staid for you? Did you miss the weird bonkers Bowie that gave us such offbeat oddities, such as Outside? Well, good news everyone. First of all, the very good news is that The Next Day wasn’t an outlier. Bowie really is back to making music full-time. The second one is that everyone is promising his new album, which drops just after the new year, will be that insane Bowie we were missing.
Need proof? The ten (yes TEN) minute long title track dropped over the holiday, and it’s certainly out there.
Are all the song on the album this long? Perhaps that’s why it’s reportedly only got seven tracks…
