Star's last album to be transformed into visual mini-series just over a month after his death

David Bowie’s Blackstar album is to be turned into an Instagram mini-series, launching this Thursday (February 25).

The project, called ‘UNBOUND’, will consist of 16 short videos presenting differing “visual interpretations” of tracks on the album and will be posted on Instagram every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday as of this Thursday.

“In the Fall of 2015, David Bowie gave us unique pre-release access to the music from Blackstar, his 28th studio album, allowing us to create our own visual interpretations of his songs, with no limits or preconditions on his part,” says an Instagram description on the project. “Completed in December 2015, UNBOUND: A★InstaMiniSeries takes the audience on a journey of evocative images inspired by the moods suggested in the album’s music, lyrics and artwork.” You can check it out here from Thursday.
