You know it's going to be a good day when upon waking and grabbing your mobile (a habit I can't seem to break, thankfully), a new music video from David Bowie is waiting for your sleepy eyes to gaze upon. Yes, another song in visual form has emerged from the Blackstar album, "I Can't Give Everything Away," with the creative component delivered by Jonathan Barnbrook, who was also responsible for the album's artwork.
The world received a right blow to the soul today on the passing of David Bowie. Although we knew he had suffered from health problems over the years that caused the canceling of performance dates, we were shocked that he’d hidden his battle with cancer for the last eighteen months. That unto itself, that Bowie would choose to focus solely on writing, recording, and producing his last gift to the world in the form of the Blackstar album, versus letting us know of his terminal illness, is not shocking. It is true form Bowie.
Released late last month (November 19th, to be exact), David Bowie's single and accompanying video, "Blackstar," was yet another short story from his endless mind of creativity. The ten-minute journey is expectadly unexpected in story line, visuals, and musical expression; the title track providing an eerie yet exciting glimpse into the forthcoming album due out January 8, 2016.
Happy Birthday David Bowie!!!! "Time may change me, But I can't trace time..." It was 40 years ago and a day, January 7, 1972, when David Bowie was about to enter what today is called the quarter-century crisis. Turning 25 was indeed a celebration, a crisis it was not since on this day RCA issued his first single "Changes/Andy Warhol."
