Ryan Staake has created the sleek, stately and, as it turns out, fittingly sombre promo for the vinyl release of Blackstar, David Bowie's final album. 

Staake's film reveals the detail of the black-on-black design of the Blackstar album cover - the only one of Bowie's albums not to feature his own image. An object of minimalist beauty that contains David Bowie's parting gift.
