20 November 2015, 08:30 | Written by Laurence Day

David Bowie's new single "Blackstar" is here, complete with an intricate, creepy short film.

The ten-minute track flashes through a range of styles - we see bountiful brass parp with classic Bowie swagger, as well as sincere balladry, sermon-like sprawls, and cinematic terrors.

"Blackstar" is the title track from Bowie's new album. The LP will follow his 2013 record The Next Day, and is set to arrive on 8 January 2016. You can pre-order it now.
