As you may or may not know, fifty years ago David Bowie released his first record. To commemorate this life achievement, a new best-of album Nothing has Changed just has been released. Fifty years, that’s impressive! From the generation that pretty much invented rock, there are not many important characters left and I’m pretty sure over the years to come, this kind of 50-year albums will be few. Pick whatever name you want from the 90’s or 00’s, and look at if they are still there now…

Love the cover by the way

Anyway, not the point. The point is David Bowie is releasing a new album! Full with classics, mostly from the 70’s, Nothing has changed is the perfect occasion for the newest generation to get to know the music of a man who litteraly changed the face of rock with his avatar Ziggy Stardust. It’s the occasion to see (well, listen to) the evolution of his own style, how he chose to redefine himself over 5 decades to push the music forward. On the downside, from what I gathered on the vinyl tracklist, songs are not sorted chronologically… maybe a choice, maybe not, those who are not familiar with the evolution of Bowie’s style, it might be surprising to jump from a genre to another.

For those who already know the drill, a best-of album is always the occasion to get back into the music whitout looking for 10 different albums to listen to a medley. But let’s face the reality: if you’re like me, you don’t need this “new album”, you already have the vinyls or CDs and you already know Let’s Dance, Ziggy Stardust, Golden years

But there is another way to “listen” to a best-of album of David Bowie! And this way, my fellow Bowie fan, is Sol Sunburst! Indeed, Sol Sunburst is a sci-fi novel loosely based on David Bowie’s songs from ’69 to ’74. A brand new way to rediscover songs you already know mixed into an original ecolo-rock story.

2169. War, climate change and animal extinctions will soon overwhelm an Earth ravaged by human greed and neglect. In a last desperate attempt to save endangered species from extinction, humans combine animal genes with human DNA to create animoids – a half-human, half-animal breed.

While the rest of the world is pinning its hopes on Major Tom and his colonisation of Mars, the Diamond Dogs – an animoid eco-terrorist group – is busy trying to save the planet from imminent destruction.

Meanwhile, Sol Sunburst, a rock star whose prophetic songs and charm have turned him into a new messiah, is predicting an Apocalypse in five years. But this is all too soon for Angela, a Diamond Dogs rookie who is on a mission to transform this condemned world…

Sol Sunburst is available only on Amazon and Kobo for very small price, and a part of the benefits will be donated to the WWF. And if you wonder whether you’ll like my novel, I made a list to present it in 10 key points. Hope to see you around…
