David Bowie releasing new album ‘Blackstar’ in January (but initial reports on the sound and content were “inaccurate”)

Earlier this month, David Bowie released a clip of a new song called “Blackstar” as the theme song for the new TV show The Last Panthers, and over the weekend it was announced that Blackstar will also be the name of his 25th album, due January 8 (his 69th birthday). The full title track will be out as a single on November 20.

Early reports said the album is Bowie’s “oddest yet” with seven tracks in 45 minutes influenced by Kraftwerk and jazz, but a new update on his site claims there has been “inaccurate reporting on the sound and content of the album.” It also points out that the title track is not part of his theatre piece, Lazarus, which had also been reported. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see what it actually sounds like.
