We duly told you last week and we say it again: in 2016 music lovers will have many reasons to celebrate thanks to the release of long-awaited new albums. One of them is David Bowie’s ★ (Blackstar), preceded by the music video for “Lazarus”.
The video is the work of Johan Renck, who also signed the short ★ in November.
With the same dark atmosphere as the short film, the video features oneiric images depicting Bowie as a blindfolded, bedridden enlightened preacher.
As Renck says: “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.”
