David Bowie‘s new album ★ (Blackstar) is out today, via ISO/Columbia. To date, a few of the tracks from the album have been released, including the epic 10-minute title track, the similarly eerie standout “Lazarus,” “Sue (or in a Season of Crime)” and “Tis a Pity She Was a Whore.” But now, the entire album is finally streaming via Spotify. It’s a much more atmospheric and ominous sounding album than its predecessor, with a tone that’s closer to the sounds of recent work by Scott Walker than those of Bowie’s vintage releases. Which is to say it’s another exciting new chapter from a consistently evolving artist, whose birthday, it turns out, is today. Listen to the David Bowie Blackstar stream below.
