David Bowie Goes Jazz for New Song ‘Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)': Listen
By Kevin Rutherford
David Bowie‘s new track is a doozy. As in, it’s a sizable song length-wise. You’re going to want to sit down to listen.
The rocker shared “Sue (Or In a Season of Crime),” one of two new songs from his upcoming Nothing Has Changed compilation, over the weekend. For fans who were worried that just two new tracks wouldn’t be enough to quench their appetite for new material, fear not: it’s nearly seven-and-a-half minutes long.
“Sue” finds lush, jazzy instrumentation beneath Bowie’s vocals, which at least feel as freeform as much of what’s going on around him. Swift percussion keeps the beat as saxophones, bass, trumpets and other instruments — all part of the Maria Schneider Orchestra — both solo and provide a bass framework for the track.
