Sound And Vision

“There are two that are really important to me. Low is my favourite David Bowie album, and I’ve always loved Sound And Vision. For me, Low was a complete game changer – you could feel it as he progressed with Station To Station. Sound And Vision was a hit single, yet it doesn’t really have any verses, and neither does it have a real chorus. It has a really long fade-in, and ends the same way. It really shouldn’t work, but it does.
“I’m also very fond of Where Are We Now? [from 2013’s The Next Day] because it’s the first Bowie song that made me weep. It’s about ghosts and a man looking back on his life. I also knew all of those places in Berlin that he was referring to, so that resonated immensely with me. It would be very hard for me to separate those two.”
