A beautiful, slower, pared down version of the more familiar album track, this mix of ‘Blackstar’ was used as the theme music for the TV crime drama ‘The Last Panthers’. 45 seconds of the track played over the title sequence. The version used for this video is twice as long, and at the time of writing, is the longest version currently available. Hopefully one day we will hear a full length version of this mix.

Renck, who also directed ‘The Last Panthers’ said of this version of ‘Blackstar’:
“The piece of music he laid before us embodied every aspect of our characters and the series itself: dark, brooding, beautiful and sentimental in the best possible incarnation of this word. All along, the man inspired and intrigued me and as the process passed, I was overwhelmed with his generosity. I still can’t fathom what actually happened”
