On Sky Atlantic You Tube channel is been posted the extended preview of the song as The Last Panthers OST, the TV show that from tomorrow, november 12th, on will be live simultaneously in all Europe.
The TV show’s director Johan Renck, who recruited Bowie for theme music, reported on the conversations had with Bowie:”I showed Mr. Bowie the two first episodes in the rough state they were at the time, and he liked what he saw very much. We discussed the various aspects of the show; naturally the plot line, but also the underlying currents of guilt and personality flaws.”
He continues: “I was looking for one of the icons of my youth to write the music for the title sequence. His first response was precise, engaged and curious.”
Bowie’s first TV theme in more than 20 years is aligned with the dark background and atmosphere of TV show: dark, brooding and sentimental. Bowie sings, in style of a priest chanting, about the biblical aspects and the dark side of human nature: “On the day of execution / Only women kneel and smile.”
