David Bowie Unveils Seven-Minute Jazz Epic ‘Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)’

David Bowie’s “Sue (Or in a Season of Crime),” taken from the Thin White Duke’s upcoming greatest hits compilation  Nothing Has Changed , premiered Sunday on BBC Music 6.

Nothing Has Changed , both a play on Bowie’s essential Changesonebowie greatest hits collection and a lyric from Heathen ‘s “Sunday,” is out on November 17th.
