Day 3! Today's record of the year is obviously Blackstar by David Bowie. A monumental record and one so perfectly poised and executed you almost wince at it's beauty force. Simultaneously baffling, beautiful and self mythologising, the scale of the whole thing is truly monolithic. The videos are also beautiful so here's Lazarus incase you haven't seen it in a while
