Visconti's guide to Bowie's new album

1 The Next Day
An historical song and horrendously gruesome. I think it's about a Catholic cardinal or tyrant. It's very violent: the main character is hung, drawn and quartered, burnt and then torn apart by people.

2 Dirty Boys
A euphemism, and song, for all the glam rock stars that have ever been.

3 The Stars (Are Out Tonight)
It's about all kind of stars. You can say I'm being secretive.

4 Love is Lost
That's not about a love affair, but how everyone has cut down their feelings in the internet age.

5 Where Are We Now?
A very personal song - it's about the Berlin we had been in in the 1970s. It is not as autobiographical as people are suggesting. He is a storytteller. This could be about him, or Berlin at a certain time.

6 Valentine's Day
Inside the mind of a high school mass murderer named Johnny, inspired by the spate of shootings in US schools.

7 If You Can See Me
A challenging jazz-funk-rockcomposttion, extremely fast with accompanying vocals by longtime Bowie singer Gail Ann Dorsey. Identities switch between someone who may be Bowie and a politician.

8 I'd Rather Be High
The lament of a demobbed Second World War soldier who would rather succumb to base emotions than be a human being. Bowie does not want to be high. He is clean and has been an AA member for years.

9 Boss of Me
Someone feels oppressed or abused, speaking in the third person.

10 Dancing Out In Space
A song about another music artist, possibly a conglomeration of artists.

11 How Does the Grass Grow?
It's a companion song to I'd Rather Be High and is about the First World War: how British soldiers were trained as a metaphor for a lot of things. Sheer poetry.

12 (You Will) Set the World on Fire
About a young female singer who gets discovered in a nightclub in the 1960s. Does she set the world on fire? It's not about anybody specific, but a couple of people who sang alongside Dylan.

13 You Feel So Lonely You Could Die
It's about Russian history, from the time of the Cold War and espionage and about an ugly demise. It sounds like an R&B song.

14 Heat
It could be about prison, loneliness and sociopathic detachment. The lyrics are so bleak I asked him what he was talking about. "Oh, it's not about me," he said. None of these songs are. He's an observer.

The Times
