David Bowie Confirms His 25th Album 'Blackstar'
David Bowie's 25th studio album is called Blackstar, and will be released Jan. 8, 2016 -- the eclectic star's 69th birthday. Bowie confirmed the album's release via his website Sunday (Oct. 25) following a widely circulated report in The Times (which Bowie's site calls "inaccurate...on the sound and content of the album").
Blackstar's titular first single will be released Nov. 20, and contrary to the earlier report, is separate from Bowie's upcoming theater project Lazarus.
