David Bowie - Blackstar

His latest album, Blackstar, was released last week to coincide with his 69th birthday, and had received widespread critical acclaim.






Blackstar was the first Bowie album not to feature a picture of him on the cover: instead, a stylised black star heralded a darker work. On re-examination, there is much in Blackstar to suggest Bowie was saying goodbye, particularly the track Lazarus and the video for the title track, which opens with the image of a dead spaceman.




“The truth is of course that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time.”

―  David Bowie
