VIDEO: David Bowie’s final recordings are absolutely wonderful


One of the biggest losses to the music world in 2016, the legendary David Bowie released what could be some of his final recordings this week with the EP, ‘No Plan’ this past Friday. The release correlated with Bowie’s 70th birthday and worldwide celebration of ‘the Thin White Duke’.The songs were recorded in the same period as Bowie’s final album 2016’s ‘Blackstar’ and according to CoS they were included in the cast recording for his recent musical, Lazurus.

A video for the dreamy dreary song ‘No Plan’ also appeared this weekend as well, with the provocative lyrics appearing on TV’s inside of a rain-drenched storefront. The words that Bowie sings here seem to allude to his oncoming death, how he is processing that, and where he may be in the afterlife. It’s a darkly beautiful song that once again shows that even in his most challenging time, this Hall of Famer was still able to make this desperately honest piece of art.

No Plan EP Tracklist:

  1. Lazarus
  2. No Plan
  3. Killing a Little Time
  4. When I Met You

The EP is out now through most streaming services.
