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 band OK Go is quite the fan of videos. Their fans are even greater fans of their videos. In the few minutes it took to watch their latest masterpiece, "Upside Down & Inside Out," viewership had gone from 8,697,631 to 8,902,131. The reason? It was filmmed in one take, as always, but this time, "We shot this in zero gravity, in an actual plane, in the sky. There are no wires or green screens."
A quite timely video was just released by Carl Barât and The Jackals for the group’s first single, “Glory Days,” in dedication to the 306 British and Commonwealth soldiers shot at dawn during World War I for "cowardice" or "desertion," yet another tragedy of war. It not only coincides with the beginnings of their new U.K. tour, which launched Thursday, 14 November and continues through 21 November in London, but with the other tributes taking place for the many, many who lost their lives 100 years ago.
