The man. The myth. The legend. David Bowie is back with a short film for the title track off his new album (pronounced “Blackstar”). Directed by Johan Renck, the piece is a 10 minute epic that focuses on space, ritual, a bejewelled skull, human scarecrows, a blindfolded Bowie, and more. It’s both stunning and unsettling. Some stars burn out or fade away, but Bowie is Bowie and decades later he continues to push the envelope. Check out the video above.

Bowie’s new album is out January 8th via Columbia.
