David Bowie has written an original song for the forthcoming thriller The Last Panthers - the first time he's contributed original music for film or TV in 20 years.
The brand new song will feature in the opening credits for the European crime thriller, which will be broadcast in six instalments on Sky Atlantic in the UK this autumn.
Bowie's contribution came after he met the series director Johan Renck during the filming of the show. In a statement, Renck explained, "I was looking for one of the icons of my youth to write the music for the title sequence, but was presented with a God. His first response was precise, engaged and curious."
He continued, "The piece of music he laid before us embodied every aspect of our characters and the series itself - dark, brooding, beautiful and sentimental (in the best possible incarnation of this word). All along, the man inspired and intrigued me and as the process passed, I was overwhelmed with his generosity. I still can't fathom what actually happened..."
The Last Panthers, which stars Samantha Morton alongside Tahar Rahim, John Hurt and Goran Bogdan, "delves into the dark heart of Europe where a shadowy alliance of gangsters and 'banksters' now rule."
Bowie's song, which is currently untitled, will be revealed later this year.
