For those of you anxiously awaiting new music from Bowie, you can tide yourselves over with this new original song from the singer which features in the opening credits to Sky Atlantic's upcoming new drama The Last Panthers.

This is the first time the artist has contributed original music for film or television in twenty years, and came about following a meeting of minds between David Bowie and the director of the series Johan Renck, who met during the filming of the show.

Renck said; “I was looking for one of the icons of my youth to write the music for the title sequence, but was presented with a God. His first response was precise, engaged and curious. The piece of music he laid before us embodied every aspect of our characters and the series itself - dark, brooding, beautiful and sentimental (in the best possible incarnation of this word). All along, the man inspired and intrigued me and as the process passed, I was overwhelmed with his generosity. I still can't fathom what actually happened..."

The Last Panthers will star 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 six-part series is set to open 'with a daring diamond heist before delving into the dark heart of Europe where a shadowy alliance of gangsters and 'banksters' now rule.

The opening song, called 'Blackstar', undoubtedly sets the tone for the show nicely.
