David Bowie surprisingly passed away today January 10, 2016.
His new secretive album ★ “Blackstar” was just released 2 days earlier on Bowie’s 69th Birthday January 8th. The video for the single “Lazarus” was released a day before on January 7th. The very first lyrics heard are on the song are:
“Look up here, I’m in heaven, I’ve got scars that can’t be seen”
Accompanied by a video of a very frail Bowie floating above a hospital bed.
It all makes sense now. The mystery surrounding the project along with the announcement months ago that Bowie had retired from touring all makes sense now.
A showman until the very end. Rest in Peace and Thank You.
David Robert Jones aka David Bowie
