David Bowie Gets Surreal in the Ten-Minute Video for ‘★’
From an album of the same name due in January
David Bowie’s been teasing a new song and album called “?” for a while now, and as with anything that surfaces from the chameleonic songwriter it’s like nothing you could’ve expected. Built around stuttering drum loops and wiry saxophones, it stretches out over 10-minutes of roiling art rock, paired with a gleefully surreal video featuring the man himself with bandages over his eyes and a skeleton floating through space, along with a host of images harder to arrange into narrative order. Even if you can’t make sense of it you’ll want to watch the whole thing below as you wait for the album (pronounced “blackstar”) due out January 8.
