David Bowie, the Duke of glam Rock, is going to launch a new song dedicated to Berlin (on March 8 in Australia, on March 12 in US, on March 11 in the rest of the world).

Berlin, the city where he lived during the 70’s, in a flat along with Iggy Pop, is part of his deepest memories. The song is accompanied by a video by Tony Oursler. A nostalgic and dark video where Bowie questions the life (and death) of Berlin through the history of German capital and some of its places and memories.

‘Tacheles’ is a graffiti which honor the post-punk movement. Potsdamer Platz remembers the destruction of the Second World War but also, the Berlinale. The Wall responsible of the Berlin division during 30 years and of the death of 270 people who looked for their liberty is present too. The Reichstag appears in the minute 1,13 and the Angel of Wim Wenders placed in Siegessäule or Victory Column at the end.

Definitely, a special video for a special tour around this city. In the past, witnessed of deaths and today, of a great interest in arts and peace.
