David Bowie announces new album


Rock legend David Bowie has revealed details about his upcoming 25th studio album ‘Blackstar’. Due to be released on 8th January (his 69th birthday) it contains 7 tracks and is full of jazz influences as well as “Gregorian chants, a soul section, various electronic beats and bleeps, and Bowie’s distinctive vocal”. The ten minute long title track is to be released on 19th November as the lead single. The album is unlikely to be supported by a tour as Bowie has stated that he has retired from touring.
