Yesterday, David Bowie shared the captivating video for the single “Lazarus,” taken from his latest album. Today, on his own birthday, Bowie finally releases his new album (which is pronounced as Blackstar). This new album features only seven tracks, but previews the new direction of his sound. A new sound that perhaps may have had some influence from Kendrick Lamar’s own music, considering Bowie admitted to listening to a lot of Kendrick while recording his new album.
