David Bowie has premiered the promo for ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight)‘, the second preview of his imminent comeback album ‘The Next Day’. Scroll down to check out the video through YouTube.
The song’s release follows the unveiling of ‘Where Are We Now?‘ last month, both of which are due to feature on Bowie’s 24th studio album, due for release in March.
“In a curiously emotive style, the song reflects upon the artist’s early career in Germany as the lyrics take us on a musical tour of Bowie’s Berlin, when at the peak of his career in the mid-to-late seventies he lived and played in the city whilst working on three albums,” Live4ever’s review of the first single reads.
“Potzdammer Platz – close to Hansa Studios where Bowie recorded ‘Low‘ and ‘Heroes‘ – and the nightclub Dschungel, are places tagged in lyrical musings of days past. Dschungel was Berlin’s answer to Studio 54, replete with female bouncers (who once turned away Sly Stallone) and a regular clientele that included Bowie, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed and later Nick Cave.”
