With a new album scheduled for release in January, David Bowie today released an audio visual teaser for the track, "Blackstar," an eerie, apocalyptic clip you can watch below.
The track and video will premiere in full via the artist's new website, imablackstar.com, on Thursday, November 19. (There's currently just a countdown clock and looped audio clip if you go there now.)
The video is directed by Johan Renck, "a music video veteran" who Bowie teamed up with when he wrote and recorded the theme song for Renck's new six-part European TV series, The Last Panthers.
According to his press team, Bowie fans "can RSVP to attend special theatrical premiere screenings" at one of five free Thursday viewing events at the Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn. Details to attend are at Eventbrite
Bowie's new album, which is stylized as ★ and pronounced Blackstar, is the singer's 25th studio album, slated for release on January 8, 2016, Bowie's 69th birthday.
