Johan Renck directs the second in a duo of music videos that he created for David Bowie’s upcoming album, Blackstar. The video, for song “Lazarus,” sees a bedridden, blindfolded Bowie eventually make his way over to putting his thoughts down on paper–in mysterious Bowie fashion, of course. The video features the same enigmatic blindfold with buttons that appeared in their first collaboration, “Blackstar.”
“One could only dream about collaborating with a mind like [Bowie’s]; let alone twice,” Renck tells The Creators Project. “Intuitive, playful, mysterious and profound… I have no desire to do any more videos knowing the process never ever gets as formidable and fulfilling as this was. I’ve basically touched the sun.”
