“Politics and all”

 

Just for the hell of it, here’s a fine new Jimmy King portrait of David Bowie utilising another mirror. Turns out it was just a Reflektor.

And, as if that wasn’t enough, we are also more than excited to announce a new visual for I’d Rather Be High (Venetian Mix) directed by Tom Hingston and viewable here and in the Vision section of DavidBowie.com.
