Yes, according to Newsweek.
Newsweek, quite a serious publication, published an article which claims that David Bowie left behind numerous albums to be released only after his death.
The article however, takes its information from an unnamed source. As we all know, ‘unnamed sources with close ties’ are all too common across every form of media. However, since this comes from Newsweek, and not The Daily Fail one is inclined to believe it just that little bit more. Or maybe we just want to believe it, because it would be incredible, and haunting, and heartbreaking.
Titled ‘ No Bowie Book, But The Starman Had Other Plans In Store’, the article actually concentrates on the future of Ziggy’s costumes and memorabilia, and at the very end the writer taunts us with this little nugget:
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.
Again, we do not like to get excited over mysterious sources and what they might whisper to a magazine, but this is Bowie. He released an album to complement his death. The man would probably have made a plan for the aftermath.
Peace out Starman, you might visit us again some day.
