'Sue (Or In A Season of Crime)' is a surprise new single from David Bowie, who's releasing 'Nothing Has Changed', a supposedly definitive, that-settles-that type greatest hits collection, later this year. The eight minute tune is going to front the first of three discs on the triple CD, but it's also getting its own 10" release. Good luck to anyone who tries to listen to it.

- Sue (or In A Season of Crime) by David Bowie
People seem to get pretty excited about David Bowie these days and its kinda funny that the A side of this new single is a discordant jazz- inflected-Sinatra-in-a-blender mess that could only please the most ardent of fans. Cue 6 Music presenters awkwardly pretending to like it as they’ve bloody hyped it up so much.
‘Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime) is kind of like his drum and bass album played simultaneously with a John Coltrane album while Scott Walker croons over the top. Overleaf on ‘’Tis Pity She Was a Whore’ a wailing fire alarm saxophone blasts away lost in some distorted churning beats and when Bowie appears, it seems as though he’s singing through a wash cloth as his voice is so muffled.
Good on him for being so bloody weird.
