David Bowie Debuts Haunting Video for New Single, "Lazarus"
David Bowie's back as an exceptionally tortured artist with his latest music video/creepy masterpiece "Lazarus", directed by Johan Renck.
To put it lightly this is a highly disturbing four-minute montage of what the most dramatic operation room might look like behind the curtains. But Bowie's singing, and he's a genius so it's totally chill.
Chock-filled with convulsions, manic saxophones, and hospital beds, which have always been kind of creepy in themselves; you've got to give it to Bowie for returning to the scene with a bang.
This track's a glimpse off his new album, which comes out tomorrow, 'Blackstar"' and yes, on his 69th birthday. F*ck yeah David Bowie.
The video's director, Renck, also added, "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."
