Nice to see him again! Sounds like a weird Innuendo, I think. Thanks for posting.

Very cool. 8-) Bowie never disappoints. I can't wait for the album.

The video for Blackstar premiered on Sky Atlantic HD last night at 8:45 pm, and bloody hell, was it textbook Bowie enigmatic! The album comes out on January 8th, and is available to pre-order from Amazon now. So that's what I did! :D

Here are the lyrics for Blackstar...

In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle, ah-ah, ah-ah
In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all
Your eyes

On the day of execution, on the day of execution
Only women kneel and smile, ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, at the centre of it all
Your eyes, your eyes

Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah

In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle, ah-ah, ah-ah
In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all
Your eyes
Ah-ah-ah

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)

How many times does an angel fall?
How many people lie instead of talking tall?
He trod on sacred ground, he cried loud into the crowd
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar, I’m not a gangster)

I can’t answer why (I’m a blackstar)
Just go with me (I’m not a filmstar)
I’m-a take you home (I’m a blackstar)
Take your passport and shoes (I’m not a popstar)
And your sedatives, boo (I’m a blackstar)
You’re a flash in the pan (I’m not a marvel star)
I’m the great I am (I’m a blackstar)

I’m a blackstar, way up, oh honey, I’ve got game
I see right so white, so open-heart it’s pain
I want eagles in my daydreams, diamonds in my eyes
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)

Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a star star, I’m a blackstar)

I can’t answer why (I’m not a gangster)
But I can tell you how (I’m not a flam star)
We were born upside-down (I’m a star star)
Born the wrong way ‘round (I’m not a white star)
(I’m a blackstar, I’m not a gangster
I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar
I’m not a pornstar, I’m not a wandering star
I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)

In the villa of Ormen stands a solitary candle
Ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, your eyes
On the day of execution, only women kneel and smile
Ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, your eyes, your eyes
Ah-ah-ah

Had this on heavy rotation since Friday morning. I like how it feels like Bowie's entire career happening at once: forwards, backwards and sideways. It's everything I love about him and yet feels like nothing I've ever heard from him all at the same time. Utter genius. Vinyl on pre-order... tempted to upgrade that to the deluxe packages on his website though, as those lithographs are beautiful!

Thanks for the link, Milky.
Early signs are good; this may be the album I've been waiting for since the incredible 90s trilogy of The Buddha Of Suburbia, 1.Outside & Earthling.

The town scenery in the video reminds me a bit of the Goblin City in Labyrinth. :P

Now that you mention it... :lol:

Have had this song on a loop almost since it came out. Utterly magnificent. Vinyl on pre-order... tempted to upgrade to the transparent vinyl with the screen prints, but still wary of transparent vinyl as a rule.

Will there be a deluxe CD version with bonus tracks? There is a one that says Blackstar deluxe with three lithographs on his site but it doesn't mention extra tracks.

Nothing mentioned as of yet. Not even a bonus track confirmed for the Japanese release.

It's crazy, I hated the song after the first listen. But now it really grew on me, this man's incredible. It's so much more than music, it's pure art. I wish I could see him live someday, but I don't think that he will tour again.
