Earlier today on Guy Garvey’s 6 Music show the world had it’s ever first listen to David Bowies new song Sue. As the title to this piece suggests there’s every possibly it’ll alienate old Bowie fans while winning him new ones at the same time! There’s a radio rip from Guy’s show below – click play and let its unfettered gloriousness wash over you!

‘Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)’ was recorded with regular collaborator Tony Visconti and the track will feature on Nothing Has Changed, a new compilation plotting Bowie’s output from 1964 to 2014. The track is steeped in the world of contemporary jazz proving the man’s still got his finger very much on the pulse of music as this year has been an incredible one for jazz releases – from Polar Bear to Led Bib and from Get the Blessing to Prescott to name but four!

Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime) is to be released as a single via Parlophone on November 17th in the UK.

Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)

 

Sue, I got the job

We’ll buy the house

You’ll need to rest

But now we’ll make it

 

Sue, the clinic called

The x-ray’s fine

I brought you home

I just said home

 

Sue, you said you wanted writ

“Sue the virgin” on your stone

For your grave

 

Why too dark to speak the words?

For I know that you have a son

Oh, folly, Sue

 

Ride the train I’m far from home

In a season of crime none need atone

I kissed your face

 

Sue, I pushed you down beneath the weeds

Endless faith in hopeless deeds

I kissed your face

I touched your face

Sue, Good-bye

 

Sue, I found your note

That you wrote last night

It can’t be right

You went with him

 

Sue, I never dreamed

I’m such a fool

Right from the start

You went with that clown
