Among many other things, David Bowie is a man of his word. As promised, the music icon premiered “★” (pronounced “Blackstar”), the lead single and title track to his new album.

69 years young and Bowie continues to evolve as the artist. “Blackstar”, one of eight tracks set to appear on the musician’s 25th album to date, is further proof of this, an epic 10-minute feat of jazz-tronica. Its accompanying short film, directed by Johan Reneck, is equally impressive. It’s a trippy watch for sure, a hodgepodge of mysterious, often times eery scenes that include an astronaut stranded on an unknown planet, headless human scarecrows, and Bowie doing his best Thom Yorke impression.

Pre-orders for the album, out January 8th, are now ongoing. The vinyl package looks especially intriguing, as you can see via the unpackaging video below.
