The next single from David Bowie’s last album , is ‘I Can’t Give Everything Away’ and a new animated visual directed by Jonathan Barnbrook has now been shared to accompany the single’s release. You can watch it above.

Barnbrook also took on the role of designer on Bowie’s last album which saw release in January of this year shortly before his death aged 69. It’s described as a tribute to Bowie by someone who played an integral role in the album’s visual identity.

“This is really a very simple little video that I wanted to be ultimately positive,” Barnbrook says. “We start off in black and white world of , but in the final chorus we move to brilliant colour. I saw it as a celebration of David, to say that despite the adversity we face, the difficult things that happen such as David’s passing, that human beings are naturally positive, they look forward and can take the good from the past and use it as something to help with the present.”
