Black Tie White Noise by David Bowie on Apple Music

12 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded after a six-year hiatus from his solo career and on the heels of his marriage to Iman, this record bursts with Bowie’s newly inspired creative ambition. Propulsive hip-hop and house beats fuse with the effusive melodies of ‘60s R&B on sophisticated urban soul tracks like "You've Been Around,” while intricately layered percussion melds with minor-key synths on the apprehensive “Jump They Say” and the trip-hop-inspired “Nite Flights,” making us want to turn our living room into our own private dance floor.

About David Bowie

Everyone has a David Bowie that they fell in love with first—the otherworldly outsider Ziggy Stardust, the electronic adventurer, the wild-eyed glam pioneer, the enigmatic storyteller. But it was Bowie's ability to reinvent himself so vividly that captivated us again and again. Driven by boundless imagination, David Bowie was a multifaceted music icon, a social provocateur, a force in fashion, and a gifted actor whose unique personas and perspectives traveled with him through the decades. From the moment his homesick astronaut captured the spotlight in the late ‘60s to his exploratory, jazz-influenced Blackstar almost 50 years later, he excelled and innovated with turns in pop, glam, punk, soul, hard rock, and electronic music. And even though Bowie released vital albums throughout his life—and will forever embody the most artful edge of rock ’n’ roll—he was more than just the music he made. Bowie's fearlessness inspired us to celebrate the complexity and beauty of being completely ourselves.
