As an Imgur user discovered this week, if the vinyl gatefold is left out in the sun (N.B - not the record itself, you’ll ruin it), its star becomes a galaxy.
It’s quite a touching little secret, and a nice nod to Bowie’s immortality as a musical and cultural icon.
The album was intended as a “parting gift” for fans, but Bowie was working on music right up until his death.
"At that late stage, he was planning the follow-up to 'Blackstar', and I was thrilled,” long-serving producer Tony Visconti told Rolling Stone, with five demos having apparently been played around with.
Bowie’s Blackstar is the best-selling vinyl of the past 12 months, even beating Adele’s 25.
