Watch: David Bowie's Video For "Lazarus"

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

David Bowie will release his 25th studio album, Blackstar, tomorrow and, on Thursday, put out the video for the single Lazarus.

Lazarus was released in December 2015 and will be included in the Bowie off-Broadway production of the same name.

Bowie began work on Blackstar immediately after the release of his last album The Next Day, released on his 66th birthday. January 8, 2016, the official release date for Blackstar is Bowie’s 69th birthday.

The Lazarus video was directed by Johan Renck who said, “One could only dream about collaborating with a mind like that; let alone twice. Intuitive, playful, mysterious and profound… I have no desire to do any more videos knowing the process never ever gets as formidable and fulfilling as this was. I’ve basically touched the sun.”
