There's a smile on our face but a tear in our eye...
Making us equal parts happy and sad is the new lyrics video for David Bowie’s ‘I Can’t Give Everything Away’.
It’s directed by Blackstar album designer Jonathan Barnbrook who says: “This is really a very simple little video that I wanted to be ultimately positive. We start off in the black and white world of Blackstar, but in the final chorus we move to brilliant colour. I saw it as a celebration of David, to say that despite the adversity we face, the difficult things that happen such as David’s passing, that human beings are naturally positive, they look forward and can take the good from the past and use it as something to help with the present. We are a naturally optimistic species and we celebrate the good that we are given.”
Since its January 8 release, the Jones boy’s last studio outing has sold nearly two million copies and hit the top spot in more than 20 countries including Ireland. Proper order!
