David Bowie’s Blackstar would be about ISIS

Next January 8th, David Bowie’s 69th birthday, Blackstar will be released. This will be Bowie’s 25th album.
In a recent interview, sax player Donny McCaslin, who cooperated in the record, said that Bowie had told him that Blackstar has one line that is dedicated to the Islamic State:
How many times does an angel fall?
How many people lie instead of talking tall?
He trod on sacred ground, he cried loud into the crowd
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar, I’m not a gangstar)”.
