REPORT: David Bowie to release new album on his 69th birthday

A report out of London suggests David Bowie will release a new album called “Blackstar” on his 69th birthday in January.

According to The Times Of London, the pending January 8 project was recorded at the Magic Shop studio in New York with local jazz musicians.

Earlier this month, Bowie previewed the title track as the theme for a new crime series, The Last Panthers, premiering on Sky Atlantic in November.

A portion of the tune can be heard over the opening credits to the 6-episode program, which will star Samantha Morton, Tahar Rahim and John Hurt when it debuts on November 12.

The Times reports the song will also be the lead single for the project and issued on November 20.

Few other details are known at this time as fans await an official announcement from Bowie.

The singer’s latest studio effort, “The Next Day”, was issued in 2013 and marked Bowie’s first album in a decade; the record peaked at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200.
