david-bowie-1

It is all over the news today. It has been months since the sad news of David Bowie’s death spread across the world, the English songwriter and actor having been immortalized through his work over the years. Now, his last pieces are to be released as well, a posthumous production that will see the final recordings appear on the Lazarus cast album, a New York jukebox musical starring Michael C. Hall. The album comes out October 21st and will feature three unreleased songs as well by the late artist, crafted during the Blackstar sessions.

There are two discs to the Lazarus Cast Recording album, with 18 of Bowie’s songs, the production as quasi-sequel to his 1976 “The Man Who Fell to Earth” film. The cast album was recorded just hours after Bowie’s death, with the members learning about the tragedy as they entered the studio for work. The compilation will include interpretations of classics from Bowie’s career as well as his three new ones, the pieces often portrayed by the cast of his hit Broadway show. The last three songs we are all looking forward to most: “No Plan,” “Killing a Little Time” and “When I Met You.”

The cast album is available for pre-order as of September 16th and includes a bit of an extra surprise with a rendition of “Lazarus” by Michael C. Hall and “Life on Mars” by Sophia Anne Caruso. Hall will be performing at the Mercury Prize ceremony on September 15th, while the London production of Lazarus opens on November 8th.
