DAVID BOWIE HAS RELEASED a video treatment for Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime), the all-new song that accompanies Bowie’s latest career-emcompassing compilation, Nothing Has Changed. Directed by Tom Hingston and Jimmy King, its murky film noir atmosphere is interspersed with projected footage of Bowie in the studio with the musicians of Maria Schneider’s big band. It plays on the song’s unsettling vibe in a very effective way.
Almost as exciting, news of the video release is accompanied by brand new colour portraits of the dame, looking hale and hearty, cool, and even slightly challenging.
Nothing Has Changed is out on Monday, November 17. We’re particularly digging the 3-CD version that’s sequenced in reverse-chronological order, beginning with Sue and ending with Liza Jane – Bowie’s debut 45, released as Davie Jones & The King Bees on Vocalion Pop in June, 1964. It’s like listening to Bowie get younger and younger before your very ears – like Merlin in T.H. White’s The Sword In The Stone, or that film with Brad Pitt in.
