In an interview he said a big inspiration for the album or atleast the sound was Kendrick Lamar - they listened to TPAB throughout the recording process.

Very odd indeed. He still sounds great, this epic of sorts is very cinematic. Only Bowie can get away with something this bizarre.

So it releases on August first?Big smile
In Denmark we go by day, month, year. Makes absolutely no sense to go month, day, year. It'd be like minute, hour, second on a digital clockTongue

Aaaanyway, I'm genuinely looking forward to this. I've been a big fan of Bowie's the last 20 years, but I have honestly never been this excited about an upcoming album.

That single just might be the best thing I've heard all year. Really looking forward to the album.

That's pretty darn fantastic. Sure it's derivative of things both he and others have already done BUT...
It's a step in a direction I, for one as a long time Bowie fan, can dig. "Lazarus" sounds great too. I that going to be from the new record too?

P.S. Check out "Outsiders", the new London Suede single if you are into proggish post Bowie shoe gaze/glam. Their new album should prove to be a murky, cranky, spacey killa' !

Looking forward to its release. Quite the pitch the second half of the clip is.

Lost count of the amount of times I've listened to it over and over.
I still love "The Next Day" but this is a massive leap from that. I love how the middle section in the title track seems like a memory from the times before Blackstar law was imposed.
The saxophones being the lead instruments over guitars really works and elevates it.
So nowhere near as "uncommercial" as the mainstream media would tell you, but every bit as vital as they say Bowie is.
I hope he doesn't tour and brings us another album, but this will do me for the next couple of years and what an album to go out on if it's the last!

Not quite as radical as I expected (the last two tracks are fairly 'normal') but very consistent. A little short but better than too long with too much filler. The best thing he's done since Earthling IMO.
