David Bowie Tries to Capture the ‘Biblical Aspects of Human Nature’ With The Last Panthers Theme

By

Ahead of its premiere next month, Sky TV has debuted the opening credits for its upcoming crime drama The Last Panthers, which includes new music from none other than David Bowie. The music legend has contributed the show's orchestral theme song, "Blackstar" (sadly not featuring Yasiin Bey or Talib Kweli), after Bowie got an early look at the series' first two episodes. The idea, the show's director Johan Renck explains, was for Bowie to capture "the dark heart of Europe" and have his theme reflect "the biblical aspects of human nature" that inspired the show's concept. Hear a brief snippet of the song in the opening credits below.
