The Times classifies the new LP as “an album of long, jazzy jams mixed with the kind of driving beat pioneered by Seventies German bands Can and Kraftwerk.” The album is also said to include hints of “Gregorian chants, a soul section, various electronic beats and bleeps and Bowie’s distinctive vocals,” combining for a record that the quoted Bowie insider describes as “completely bonkers.”

Bowie’s last full-length album, “The Next Day,” bowed in 2013. “Blackstar” continues Bowie’s tradition of galaxy-inspired album titles, including “Earthling,” “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” and “Space Oddity.”

“Blackstar” is expected to be released on Jan. 8th, 2016, Bowie’s 69th birthday.
