David Bowie’s final recordings to feature on new ‘Lazarus’ album

David Bowie’s final ever recordings will feature on a new album of songs from his Lazarus musical. ‘Lazarus Cast Album’ will be available for pre-order on Friday (Sep16) with all orders receiving instant downloads of the cast versions of “Life On Mars?” (sung by Sophia Anne Caruso) and the title track (sung by Michael C. Hall).

The show, co-written with Irish playwright Enda Walsh and directed by Belgian director Ivo van Hove, stars Dexter and Six Feet Under actor Michael C Hall. It will now run at the Kings Cross Theatre in London from October 25, 2016 to January 21, 2017.

As regards the Lazarus cast album, it was produced by the show’s musical director Henry Hey, who had previously worked with Bowie on “The Next Day” and will be released on October 21 via ISO/RCA Records.

It was recorded January 11, 2016 and upon arriving at the studio, the musicians and cast were shocked and saddened to learn that Bowie had passed away the evening before. Their emotional performances that day are captured on this recording. Track Listings below.
