David Bowie will release his new album Blackstar in January, exactly two years after he released his first album in a decade The Next Day.
Speaking of David Bowie, Oscar winning director Danny Boyle has been trying to develop a musical about The Thin White Duke for years and it is currently in a strange place because he can't lock down the music rights to the project, which has forced it to be shelved for now. Boyle told Happy Sad Confused: “It’s a wonderful script, by Frank Cottrell Boyce. It’s a sort of musical, but we couldn’t get the music rights. I didn’t want it to go down the route of ‘Velvet Goldmine,’ which couldn’t use the music, and used different music, and fictionalized it and stuff like that. So, we had to put it away for the moment. It’s a beautiful piece, and I hope we’ll be able to return to it. I’d love to do this film. It’s not really a musical, but it is [laughs], so we’ll see.”

I've got to clear a lot of stuff the f--- out, which is really therapeutic, 'cause I can really hold a grudge. Life is so much easier when you don't hoard your past."
