New album set for release on Bowie's birthday in January; single arrives in November

Following rumours of a new album from David Bowie due in January, the news has now been confirmed on his website.

Blackstar will be Bowie's 25th studio album following on from 2013's The Next Day which marked Bowie's first album of new material in 10 years. A statement on Bowie's website says: "Contrary to inaccurate reporting on the sound and content of the album, only the following can be confirmed: The single will be released on November 20th and is not part of David’s theatre piece Lazarus. The album will be released on David’s birthday, January 8th 2016."
