Watch Trailer For Upcoming DAVID BOWIE Documentary ‘MOONAGE DAYDREAM’

27 May 2022

MOONAGE DAYDREAM is a new documentary that illuminates the life and genius of DAVID BOWIE. It shows how he worked across several disciplines, not just music and film but also dance, painting, sculpture, video and audio collage, screenwriting, acting, and live theatre. The film reveals the celebrated icon through his own voice and features 48 musical tracks, mixed from their original stems.

The docu is written, directed, edited, and produced by Brett Morgen. Bowie’s long-time collaborator, friend and music producer Tony Visconti also worked on the film.

Director Morgan recently revealed that he suffered a heart attack while working on
the documentary: “Just as I started working on this film, I suffered a massive heart attack.
I flatlined for three minutes and was in a coma. My life was out of control, and I was entirely work obsessed. I put all my ego into my work and I’m the father of three kids. When you have
an experience like that, you think, what’s been the message of my life? Work hard and die in your 40s?”

The documentary’s title references David Bowie’s eponymous song Moonage Daydream his masterly 1972 LP The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, which introduced the world to his iconic, gender-bending, and groundbreaking stage persona, Ziggy Stardust.

The film will premiere in Cannes in July.
Theatre screenings will follow and in
2023 HBO will broadcast it.

ZIGGY BOWIE STARDUST Released Otherwordly Classic ‘STARMAN’ 50 Years Ago Today

Top singles from the past

14 April 2022

DAVID BOWIE released the stellar and otherworldly STARMAN single on 14 April 1972, today 50 years ago. It’s the fourth track on his magnum opus The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars which revealed his best-known artistic persona ever.

It was his first hit since ‘Space Oddity’ three years
before, in 1969. Starman peaked at #10 in the UK.

He’d like to come and meet us
But he thinks he’d blow our minds
There’s a starman waiting in the sky
He’s told us not to blow it
‘Cause he knows it’s all worthwhile
He told me
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

Here’s the iconic Top Of The Pops performance featuring the great, late Mick Ronson

SHARON VAN ETTEN Is A STARMAN For 70 Seconds

11 April 2022

Beaut songstress SHARON VAN ETTEN just announced her 6th full-length WE’VE BEEN GOING ABOUT THIS ALL WRONG, out on 6 May. In the weeks before she shared two
new songs that will, weirdly, not be on that album.

And this 70 seconds of covering David Bowie‘s STARMAN (which came out 50 years ago)
won’t be on it either. It’s actually the end-credits song for the new Netflix documentary Return To Space about Eton Musk and his obsession for space missions.

Only 70 seconds, but quite special ones…

Bowie‘s original…
