David Bowie's

Blackstar

First off...if you haven't bought David Bowie's final album "Blackstar", DO IT! Of course I would recomend getting it on vinyl, not only for the sound quality, but because the cover does some pretty cool stuff too. 

It was reported earlier this year that when you hold the cover up in sunlight that stars will appear in the big star itself. Now Spin.com is letting us in on a few more secrets. For example, when you hold it under a blacklight the star glows purple like you can see above. The font used for the track listing is called "Terminal" that also appears in a design suite called Lazarus–the name of a Blackstar track and a musical that Bowie composed before his death. “Was Bowie telling us he was out of time, terminal??? Bowie of course passed away two days after the album's release of liver cancer, which he was aware of while recoreding the album. 

There are other cool things that have been discovered on it and the vinyl itself. Check them all out right here at Spin.com, then go listen to some Bowie.
