Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

The final three songs known to be recorded by David Bowie have been released as an EP entitled No Plan. The tracks were all previously available as part of the cast album for Bowie’s 2016 musical Lazarus.

The four-track EP, which is currently available on iTunes, features the songs “No Plan,” “Killing a Little Time” and “When I Met You,” along with “Lazarus” from Bowie’s final studio album Blackstar. The No Plan songs were recorded during the same sessions that birthed that acclaimed album. In addition, a new video for the EP’s title track has been released and can be seen above.

Tomorrow (January 8) marks what would have been Bowie’s 70th birthday. He commemorated his 69th birthday last year by releasing the acclaimed, jazz-inflected Blackstar. Two days later, he died following a previously undisclosed battle with cancer.

It has been widely reported that Bowie planned Blackstar to be a farewell album, but recently video director Johan Renck, who directed the video for “Lazarus,” says the singer didn’t know his treatments would be unsuccessful until after the record was finished. “I found out … the week we were shooting, it was when he was told it was over,” Renck said, “they were ending treatments and that his illness had won.”

A series of tribute concerts for Bowie will take place all over the world in the coming weeks, including a show Jan. 24 at the Wiltern in Los Angeles, which will be headlined by Sting.
