We’ve watched and re-watched David Bowie’s 10 minute long music video for his new song “”(pronounced “Blackstar”) and still have no idea what’s going onbut we can say with certainty that the audiovisual experience is weird in the best way possible. Like a theater stage, scenes change from a jeweled skeleton in a spacesuit to a lot of cult-like dancing and human scarecrows as Bowie’s voice trembles with emotion in this experimental pop-meets-prog-rock-meets-jazz-meets-the-future-meets-everything track. With 27 albums under his belt, Bowie still has that fiery hunger not to cruise but to keep pushing his musical boundaries. His upcoming album of the same name releases when the musician turns 69, in January 2016.
