Bowie has teamed up with the Maria Schneider Orchestra to release his first new material since 2013 comeback album The Next Day
David Bowie has revealed he has teamed up with a leading jazz orchestra for his new single.
The track, called Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)," is under wraps until it is premiered this weekend but is said to be jazz-oriented".
The song—also to feature on a forthcoming collection drawn from across his half century recording career—was recorded in New York in the summer with the Maria Schneider
Orchestra, featuring eminent brass soloists.
It is his first new material since the release of his unexpected comeback album The Next Day
, which came out last year after almost almost a decade away from the studio.
Despite his regular changes of style, he has rarely touched on jazz in his lengthy career. He collaborated with jazz guitarist Pat Metheny
in the Eighties but the resulting single This Is Not America" was not wholly jazz.
