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.
