David Bowie releases 'Blackstar' short film trailer

Posted on

David Bowie’s forthcoming album, ★ (a.k.a. Blackstar) isn’t due out until Jan. 8, but Friday he shared a two-minute trailer for a short film that will accompany the collection.

The clip follows a two-minute teaser of the album’s lead song, which he put out Tuesday. Directed by Johan Renck, the entire project will premiere Thursday, Nov. 19 at 3:50 ET via Palladia and will air at Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema that night. The single, “Blackstar,” will premiere the next day.

The album will also feature the song featured in the opening credits to British show, The Last Panthers, which Bowie wrote earlier this year.
