David Bowie has released the epic 10 minute video for his new track, Blackstar.

The single releases today while the album of the same name will land on January 8, on the legendary star's 69th birthday.

The track was written for the opening credits of brand new crime drama, The Last Panthers, which launched across Europe on Sky Atlantic last night and the video was directed by the series director, Johan Renck.

The Times recently reported that the album contains seven songs and spans 45 minutes with the lead track being 10 minutes in total.

Bowie's last full studio album, his 24th, was 2013's The Next Day, which reached number one in the UK charts.

It was announced on his 66th birthday and its lead single, Where Are We Now?, released the same day.

The Next Day was his first new album in 10 years, so fans have faced a much shorter wait for Blackstar.
