Finished, but not lost: David Bowie’s last recordings will be released next month

Pop superstar David Bowie left a crater the size of Mars in the music scene when he departed, and the world is still recovering. Well get ready to go through all five stages of grief again because Ziggy’s last recordings are on their way.

This news comes as part of a cast album from Bowie’s musical Lazarus. The songs have only been heard as performed by the cast of Lazarus, and with the record’s release comes the studio versions performed by Bowie.
