Some days I work from home and love to put on music while I work. I don't know who made this Bowie playlist but it is one of the best 75 minutes of music I listen to on a regular basis. His early work was amazing.

Here's the new song and video. It's good to have weird David Bowie back.

Well this is the best new thing I've heard in 2015. I mean where to even begin with this?

It's the closest he's come to fronting a Thom Yorke side project was my first feeling.

This is the most amazing/important piece of music I have EVER heard. Nothing even comes close to this!

Love it. So weird, but really something else.

Wow! If the new album is an album full of this sort of stuff it will be amazing. Top marks!

I've always been more of a fan of Bowie as a cultural icon than for his actual music, but on his last album, The Next Day, there is a track called If You Can See Me that it is absolutely fascinating, both in music and lyrics. It's brilliant and engrossing.

Yes its very Yorkian to start with and then it turns into something Yorke could never dream of doing in 2015. It's a very unmainstream single but what's he care he conquered the world a few times over, now he's just in it to do what he wants.

Here's the tracklist for Blackstar:

1. Blackstar
2. 'Tis A Pity She Was A W****
3. Lazarus
4. Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)
5. Girl Loves Me
6. Dollar Days
7. I Can't Give Everything Away

It's interesting that two tracks were already released earlier this year (Sue and 'Tis A Pity), I wonder if they'll be different mixes.

I'd love to see a tour where half of the shows' setlists come from Blackstar and The Next Day.

There's not many artists who can go back to being weird after being mainstream. Blackstar and the accompanying video are amazing.

It's not the first time he's done it either. After his mainstream success in the '80s he released Outside (probably his most experimental album) in '95.
