Legendary singer David Bowie, died after a difficult 18-month battle with cancer, but he left one magical gift for fans — an epic new album. The singer-songwriter’s final record was a carefully-orchestrated farewell to his fans, his producer has confirmed.
“He always did what he wanted to do. And he wanted to do it his way and he wanted to do it the best way,”producer Tony Visconti stated on his Facebook. “His death was no different from his life – a work of Art. He made Blackstar for us, his parting gift. I knew for a year this was the way it would be. I wasn’t, however, prepared for it. He was an extraordinary man, full of love and life. He will always be with us. For now, it is appropriate to cry.” Buy “Blackstar” here!
The title of the new music video “Lazarus“, refers to the biblical character who was raised from the dead four days after he died by Jesus. Within the video itself, David is confined to a hospital bed with dirty medical gauze covering his eyes. The footage finishes with him retreating in to a dark closet and closing the doors. It’s truly one for the record books.
A statement was released early Jan. 11 about David’s heartbreaking passing. “David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer,” read a statement posted on the artist’s official social media accounts. “While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief.”
