Bowie's Blackstar: More theme music revealed

More of David Bowie’s Blackstar has been revealed in another trailer for The Last Panthers, which uses the track as its theme tune.

The TV drama will be premiered on Sky Atlantic on November 12 (Thursday), featuring a song Bowie revealed to director Johan Renck after the pair watched the first two episodes together.

Renck recently said: “We discussed the plot, the currents of guilt and personality flaws. I showed him the concept board I’d made for the title sequence. That’s when he said, ‘It all fits.’ Then he played me Blackstar.”

It’s also the title track of Bowie’s next album, to be released on January 8 – two years after his surprise comeback The Next Day. The song will be launched as a single on November 20.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
