Extended listen of David Bowie’s ‘Blackstar’ released to celebrate the launch of Sky Atlantic drama, The Last Panthers


To celebrate this week’s launch of major new crime drama The Last Panthers, a further 45 seconds of David Bowie’s brand new song ‘Blackstar’ has been released exclusively by Sky Atlantic.

The unveil comes just two days before the series launches simultaneously across Europe on Sky Atlantic at 9pm, 12 November 2015, and is the soundtrack to 90 seconds of never-before-seen footage from The Last Panthers.

‘Blackstar’ is the title track for the series and is a result of collaboration between David Bowie and the director of The Last Panthers, Johan Renck.

The six part series, jointly pan-European commission from Sky and CANAL + in France, stars Academy Award nominee and BAFTA winner Samantha Morton alongside double Cesar award winner Tahar Rahim, Croatian star Goran Bogdan and two time Academy Award Nominee, three-time BAFTA winner and Golden Globe winner John Hurt.

The series is produced by France's Haut et Court TV ('The Returned') and the UK's Warp Films ('This is England') and directed by the acclaimed Johan Renck (Bloodline, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead as well as videos by Madonna, New Order, Beyoncé and Lana Del Rey) and was filmed in Marseille, Belgrade, Montenegro and London.

The Last Panthers is screening on Sky Atlantic in the UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany and Austria from 12 November.
