David Bowie is releasing a brand new 7-song LP entitled Blackstar (but styled as ★) on January 8, 2016 (which is Bowie’s birthday). We’ve already been treated to the amazing sci-fi video for the album’s 10-minute long title track. Now we have the album’s next single, “Lazarus.” A teaser trailer for the song was shared earlier this week and then today the song premiered on both BBC 6 Music and NPR. It’s the only song on Blackstar to be featured in Bowie’s current off-Broadway play, also titled Lazarus. The cast of the play will also perform the song tonight on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Check it out below.

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 title track has been used as the theme song to the British TV heist drama for Sky Atlantic, The Last Panthers.
