David Bowie Left A Cool Surprise in ‘Blackstar’ Album Artwork
Rock legend David Bowie released his last album Blackstar on January 8th, a week before his unexpected passing.
While fans have had the album in heavy rotation since Bowie died, there’s a certain surprise they missed.
A reddit user discovered that when you leave the gatefold of theBlackstar project in sunlight, the all-black cover has a starlight design. The user discovered the cover changed after sitting in the sun for a couple of hours. The star design only appears after being placed in sunlight. Exposing the cover to other lights, such as black lights or normal room lighting, doesn’t reveal the hidden design.
What’s really cool about the secret design is it doesn’t last for too long. Just like the nighttime sky, the stars fade after a couple of hours. Check out a picture of it below.
David Jones uses the professional name Bowie because he didn't want to be confused with the Monkees' Davy Jones.
"Bowie" has repeatedly in the past made dramatic pronouncements: He wouldn't fly. Ziggy would never perform again. He did a hits tour I saw where he said it was the last time he would play the hit songs (not true).
Then, "David Bowie" who, really, doesn't look that unhealthy - suddenly is announced as dead from more than a year of liver cancer.
There can't help but be a small - albeit pathetic - hope that David Jones has decided to live the rest of his life out of the limelight after his on stage heart attack, and has declared "David Bowie" dead.
Liver cancer, I'd think, would cause significant wasting and maybe jaundice (depending). Here he is in December - having had cancer for more than a year, presumably.
I get it now. He did look surprisingly vibrant in those last pics.
I wish that the "dark star" was just a new persona, but alas, he's gone.
