Unnamed source says we can expect years of new music releases from David Bowie


The more I learn about David Bowie, the more I’m awed by his ability to manufacture excitement, interest, intrigue. His latest musical release, Blackstar, came out two days before his death. And the album eerily presaged the artist’s own end (see Rich Karfilis’s piece Bowie Turns His Own Death Into A Work Of Art). Now, it seems, Bowie plotted out new musical releases years into the future. Newsweek cites an unnamed source who says new music is on the horizon:

There is “a long list of unscheduled musical releases that Bowie planned before he died.” These releases, Newsweek’s source says, have been divided into eras and will not necessarily be released in chronological order. It is not yet known whether they will contain previously unheard work, though past rereleases of Bowie’s work have. The first of these compilations will be on sale before the end of 2017.

Rock memorabilia collector Kevin Cann believes we’ve got plenty of surprises in store.

Bowie, Cann adds, was smart too. His new projects came out in drips, not a flood. And despite the vastness of the archive, Cann doesn’t think we’ll be seeing much of it anytime soon. “Bowie only gave you just enough of everything to still keep you hungry,” he says. “Blackstar has only come out recently, which is enough for the moment. There’s plenty of time for other things.”

The Starman’s gone beyond the veil, and he’s still managing to communicate with us. I can’t wait to see what else he has to say.
