David Bowie has released a new video for his track, “Lazarus“.

“Lazarus” is the second single from Bowie’s 28th album ★, which is released on January 8 on ISO/Columbia Records.

Director Johan Renck, who also directed the 10-minute short film for the album’s title track, commented on the experience of visually interpreting that song and “Lazarus”:

“One could only dream about collaborating with a mind like that; let alone twice. Intuitive, playful, mysterious and profound… I have no desire to do any more videos knowing the process never ever gets as formidable and fulfilling as this was. I’ve basically touched the sun.”

The “Lazarus” video appears to be directly connected to the “★” video: it features the return of the button-eyed character played by Bowie in the previous film.

    I have seen a few places online say that it is Bowie’s 28th studio album, but I’m not sure where that number comes from. Most other places, including Wikipedia say it’s his 25th. In fact, even the Uncut review of the album says that is is the 25th.
