DAVID BOWIE WEB SERIES COMING TO INSTAGRAM


David Bowie Blackstar

David Bowie may no longer be with us, but the music legend is still surprising us with new material.

The folks at InstaMiniSeries, a channel that creates original programming for Instagram, said Bowie gave them advance access to his final album Blackstar and gave them creative control of turning it into a 16-episode series that will premiere on the social media site on February 25.

“Completed in December 2015, UNBOUND: A★InstaMiniSeries takes the audience on a journey of evocative images inspired by the moods suggested in the album’s music, lyrics and artwork,” a post on the InstaMiniSeries channel read.

“Each episode of the series is sure to capture the imaginations of all who experience it and will undoubtedly lead to endless speculation and discussion of meaning, metaphor and intention.”

Bowie released the Blackstar album just days before his death in January, as a deliberate “parting gift” to fans.

See the teaser trailer for the web series below.

“UNBOUND: A ★ InstaMiniSeries” In the Fall of 2015, David Bowie gave us unique pre-release access to the music from ★ (pronounced ‘Blackstar’), his 28th studio album, allowing us to create our own visual interpretations of his songs, with no limits or preconditions on his part. Completed in December 2015, UNBOUND: A★InstaMiniSeries takes the audience on a journey of evocative images inspired by the moods suggested in the album’s music, lyrics and artwork. Each episode of the series is sure to capture the imaginations of all who experience it and will undoubtedly lead to endless speculation and discussion of meaning, metaphor and intention. We are honored to have had this opportunity and hope you’ll join our 16 episode series, premiering February 25th. New episode every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
