Loving David Bowie's new single ... the Album cover, not so much
This morning I bought the new single from David Bowie. It is lovely ... in a melancholic kind of way. It really meanders nicely before building around the 2:40min mark ... in a truly effortless kind of way ... into something really special indeed. I really like it and am hopeful for the album when it is released in March. Have a wee listen below...
I am, however, not so hopeful about the cover. Whilst no one can argue that it isn't innovative ... albeit not as innovative as the video ... it just doesn't sit well with me. It seems lazy and lacking in imagination. I really hope it is a temporary cover and a better one will be unveiled when the album is launched.
I'll happily do one for you, Mr Bowie? Happy Birthday, btw.
