David Bowie will premiere his new single “★” (pronounced “Blackstar”) alongside an accompanying short film on Thursday, Nov. 19.

The Johan Renck-directed film will premiere globally at 3:50 p.m. ET with a theatrical premiere at the Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn, which can be RSVP’d to here.

“★” will be the first taste and title track of Bowie’s next album, which is due out on the icon’s 69th birthday, Jan. 8, 2016. It will be Bowie’s first album since he returned to music with 2013’s The Next Day.
