Rumors of new music from David Bowie have reached a fever pitch, with reports surfacing today (Oct. 24) of an album that willarrive on Jan. 8, 2016. The record is expected to be called Blackstar, after the theme song he wrote for The Last Panthers.
According to the Times, Blackstar‘s seven songs clock in at 45 minutes and “may well be the oddest work yet” from Bowie. They called it “an album of long, jazzy jams mixed with the kind of driving beat pioneered by ’70s German bands Can and Kraftwerk,” and said that it was recorded at New York’s The Magic Shop with a band comprised of jazz musicians.
