Official Press Release - 09.2003
DAVID BOWIE'S NEW SINGLE - 'NEW KILLER STAR' - LIMITED EDITION DVD ONLY SINGLE - RELEASED 29TH SEPTEMBER 2003
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hot on the heels of the announcement of his 26th studio album 'REALITY' and his ground breaking interactive live cinema event on September 8th, DAVID BOWIE has announced the details of the first single from 'REALITY' entitled 'NEW KILLER STAR'.
The pile-driving rhythm of 'NEW KILLER STAR' is the opening track of 'REALITY' and sets the tone for the mostly up-tempo feel of the album which Bowie himself has said 'Was built to play live'.
As with all things Bowie, the formatting of 'NEW KILLER STAR' is not exactly the norm and is a twist on the conventional wisdom of what a single is.
The single package itself will only appear as a limited edition DVD featuring the stunning video for the lead track as well as a very surprising cover version of 'Love Missile F-111', originally recorded by 80's cult heroes, Sigue Sigue Sputnik.
The highly individual video for 'NEW KILLER STAR' was directed by the Los Angeles based film-maker Brumby Boylston. The video itself is based on the concept of early 70's lenticular postcards that reveal a different image depending on the angle at which it is viewed.
The DVD also features a four minute short film incorporating exclusive interview and performance footage of David performing and talking about tracks from 'REALITY'.
The album is released just prior to Bowie beginning his highly anticipated sold out European tour, which will commence on October 7th in Copenhagen and comes to a close in Glasgow on November 28th.
