New David Bowie album? Yes it is possible. The cast of hit off-Broadway show Lazarus will release David Bowies final recording this October. This intriguing album will include some of the old classics from the early departed musician, and three of his final studio recordings: No Plan, Killing A Little Time, and When I Met You.

The album will be released November 8th during UK opening of Lazarus at London’s King Cross theatre. This masterpiece was co-produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti. The album was recorded with Donny McCaslin and his famous quartet. This quartet collaborated with Bowie on his final album Blackstar.

The album was produced by Henry Hey. This magnificent director was working with Bowie on The Next Day. The layarust cast is featuring Michael C Hall, Sophia Anne Caruso, Cristin Milioti, Michael Esper, and others. Collaborations are including seven piece house band, which Hey formed especially for the New York run of the show.

The album was recorded on 11 January 2016. According to a statement, on 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.”

Blackstar was David Bowie last album, and it is nominated for 2016’s Mercury music prize. On September 15th, Michael C Hall, Hey and The Lazarus house band will be performing the song Lazarus. If you are a fan, you will be able to watch this performance on BBC 4 and BBC Radio 6 Music.
