David Bowie has confirmed his new album will be called “Blackstar” and released on his 69th birthday on 8 January.
The singer made the announcement on his official website and Facebook page, adding that “Blackstar” will also be the title of his forthcoming single.
The album will follow-up 2013’s “The next day”, which debuted at number one in the UK.
Last month, it was announced that Bowie had written the theme song for a new television show in Europe, “The last panthers,” his first project for TV or film in 20 years. And rehearsals for “Lazarus,” a hallucinatory sequel to “The man who fell to Earth” featuring new music by Mr. Bowie, are underway in New York.
