David Bowie Planned "Long List" of Posthumous Releases Before His Death

BY Calum SlingerlandPublished Jan 25, 2016

In the wake of David Bowie's passing earlier this month, it has been revealed that, before his death, the star had arranged plans to deliver "a long list of unscheduled musical releases" that may include archival material.

A source close to the singer told Newsweek that the future releases have been "divided by era" and will not be released in chronological order. While it still remains to be seen whether they will include previously unheard material, the first compilation will reportedly see release before the end of 2017.

A cast recording for Lazarus, the off-Broadway play Bowie helped pen, is also in the works. Apart from music, Newsweek also reports that a long-rumoured autobiography and another book titled Bowie:Object will not be completed posthumously.
