With never-before-witnessed clips, performances and tunes up for view, to say we’re stoked would be an understatement. To top it all off, the documentary will also be led by Bowie’s narration. Reportedly, it’s also the first feature film about the legendary musician to be formally sanctioned by the Bowie estate.

“Moonage Daydream illuminates the life and genius of David Bowie, one of the most prolific and influential artists of our time,” reads an official statement about the film. “The motion picture reveals the celebrated icon through his own voice and features 48 musical tracks, mixed from their original stems.”

According to a press release about the upcoming documentary, director Brett Morgen was provided with “unfiltered access to Bowie’s personal archives,” throughout the making of this film.

This included access to “all master recordings, to create an artful and life-affirming film that takes the audience on a journey through Bowie’s creative life”.
