David Bowie is releasing a brand new 7-song LP entitled Blackstar (but styled as ★) on January 8, 2016 (which is Bowie’s birthday). The album’s title track will premiere next Thursday (November 19) via a short film/video directed by Johan Renck and now a 30-second trailer for the film has been released and can be watched below.

Normally a trailer for a music video is a non-event, but this video looks pretty damn interesting, with lots of sci-fi and religious imagery. The film will premiere on the cable channel Palladia on Thursday at 3:50 PM EST and will also screen at the Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn on Thursday (RSVP details are here).

Blackstar was recorded at the Magic Shop studio in New York with local jazz musicians and is the follow-up to 2013’s excellent The Next Day. Part of the album’s 10-minute long title track has been used as the theme song to the British TV heist drama for Sky Atlantic, The Last Panthers, and you can also watch the opening credits to that below.
