On Nov. 18, David Bowie will release a new career-spanning compilation titled Nothing Has Changed. He’s done a few of those through his career (this is the fourth by our count), though this time the 3-CD collection features selections that date up to last year’s The Next Day. The compilation also features a handful of new tracks, including the new single “Sue (Or In a Season of Crime)”, which will also be released on 10-inch vinyl the same day as Nothing Has Changed. And with just a few days to go before it’s out, Bowie has released a video for the new song.
Directed by Jimmy King and Tom Hingston, the clip is a black-and-white video that depicts Bowie singing, with his image and the song’s lyrics projected against a wall. It has a kind of slow, pretty art film feel about it, with a darkness and cinematic quality that recalls a time in the ’80s when videos were starting to become more than just promotional tools for artists. Anyway, it’s cool. Watch the David Bowie “Sue (Or In a Season of Crime)” video below.
