LAZARUS

David Bowie’s last release, Lazarus, was ‘parting gift‘ for fans in carefully planned finale
The producer of Blackstar confirms David Bowie had planned his poignant final message, and videos and lyrics show how he approached his death

David Bowie’s final record was a carefully-orchestrated farewell to his fans, his producer has confirmed.
Lazarus, released on the Bowie’s 69th birthday just two days before his death, opens with the lyrics:

“Look up here, I’m in Heaven!”

Its video, which will be viewed in a very different light by millions of fans today, features the musician in a hospital bed, and finishes with him retreating in to a dark closet.

Tony Visconti, the producer who worked with Bowie to complete his final album, has released a statement saying it was deliberately created and timed as a “parting gift” for his fans.

In a statement on his Facebook page, he said:

“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.

His death was no different from his life – a work of Art.”

LYRICS TO LAZARUS

Look up here, I’m in heaven
I’ve got scars that can’t be seen
I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen
Everybody knows me now

Look up here, man, I’m in danger
I’ve got nothing left to lose
I’m so high it makes my brain whirl
Dropped my cell phone down below

Ain’t that just like me

By the time I got to New York
I was living like a king
Then I used up all my money
I was looking for your ass

This way or no way
You know, I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Now ain’t that just like me

Oh I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Oh I’ll be free
Ain’t that just like me

DAVID BOWIE

Musician and Actor Dies at Age 69 From Cancer, Publicist Says
Bowie died Sunday, his representative confirmed.

He won a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for his work in multiple musical genres, and starred in several films, including “Labyrinth.”

GoldSwirl

David Robert Jones (8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016), known professionally as David Bowie was an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, arranger, painter and actor. He was a figure in popular music for over four decades, and was considered by critics and other musicians as an innovator, particularly for his work in the 1970’s. His androgynous appearance was an iconic element of his image, principally in the 1970’s and 1980’s.

Born and raised in Brixton, south London, Bowie developed an early interest in music although his attempts to succeed as a pop star during much of the 1960’s were frustrating. “Space Oddity” became his first top five entry on the UK Singles Chart after its release in July 1969. After a three-year period of experimentation, he re-emerged in 1972 during the glam rock era with his flamboyant and androgynous alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

The character was spearheaded by his single “Starman” and album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. Bowie’s impact at that time, as described by biographer David Buckley, “challenged the core belief of the rock music of its day” and “created perhaps the biggest cult in popular culture”. The relatively short-lived Ziggy persona proved to be one facet of a career marked by reinvention, musical innovation and visual presentation.

In 1975, Bowie achieved his first major American crossover success with the number-one single “Fame” and the album Young Americans, which the singer characterized as “plastic soul”.

NOIR ARTIST COMPLETES BOWIE ★ BILLBOARD

“Everybody knows me now …”

We geo-targeted this story to our Belgian FB members yesterday, but now the work is completed it’s only fair to share it FB wide.

The picture here is of NOIR Artist having completed a mural commissioned by Sony Music Belgium for David Bowie’s ★ album.

The work was created in the Toison D’ Or shopping mall in Brussels on Friday and Saturday, and the time it took to complete was used as part of a contest to win a citytrip to the David Bowie Is expo in Holland.
