Bowie’s No Plan

On 8th January, the day that would have been David Bowie’s 70th birthday, a new EP and a music video have been released.

The EP features the tracks “Lazarus”, “Killing A Little Time”, “Outside”, “When I Met You” and “No Plan”, all songs recorded during the production of last year’s album Blackstar and part of the song-list and album soundtrack for the Bowie musical Lazarus, currently playing at London’s Kings Cross Theatre.

The music video for the track ‘No Plan’, directed by Tom Hingston, is homage to Bowie’s extra-terrestrial character Thomas Newton from the film The Man Who Fell to Earth, as it features a shop named Newton Electrical. Blue television screens light up with the lyrics of the late icon plus shots of rockets and spaceships.

Marking what would have been David Bowie’s 70th birthday, a concert was held in Brixton by his former bandmates, with La Roux, Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran, Gary Oldman and Tony Hadley of Spandau Ballet also present.

Listen now to No Plan EP and watch the music video below.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
