David Bowie Writes Theme Tune for New Crime Drama | Music News

David Bowie has been commissioned to write an original song for Canal+/Sky Atlantic television show ‘The Last Panthers’, the Guardian reports. The show will air later this year in the UK and France. Last month, it was revealed that Bowie would be one of many musicians contributing to a forthcoming SpongeBob Squarepants musical.

 

This will be Bowie’s first piece of music for TV or Film since 1993’s Buddha of Suburbia and on a Facebook statement it has been described as “a meeting of minds between Bowie and the director of the series Johan Renck.”

 

In the statement, Renck adds:

 

“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…”

My name is kira and I study Media and Communications. I live in the beautiful and wonderfully diverse city of Brighton. I've loved writing since a young child when I would write poems about my goldfish and leaves I found on the floor. (I'm hoping my writing style has slightly progressed since then!) I love listening to live music and try to go to as many gigs as possible. Follow my social media if you want to know more!
