David Bowie’s final recordings set for CD and vinyl release

An EP of David Bowie’s final recordings, “No Plan”, will be released on CD on February 24 and on vinyl on April 21.

The package – which was recently issued digitally in sync with the late singer’s 70th birthday last month – features the title track, "Killing A Little Time" and "When I Met You" alongside “Lazarus” from 2016’s “Blackstar” album.

The three tunes were first released last fall on the Original Cast Recording of the Broadway musical, “Lazarus”, a production featuring Bowie’s music that was inspired by Walter Tevis' novel The Man Who Fell To Earth; the musician previously starred in the 1976 film adaptation of the same name that was directed by Nicolas Roeg.

“No Plan” will be issued on special vinyl formats including a limited edition made-to-order numbered die-cut package with white vinyl, and an exclusive artwork lithograph by Jonathan Barnbrook that will be available to pre-order for a limited time only.

Last month, the “No Plan” digital EP reached No. 1 on the iTunes charts of 11 countries including the UK, Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Finland and Sweden, and broke the Top 20 in more than 30 territories.

A year ago, Bowie released his 25th album, “Blackstar”, on his 69th birthday – just two days before his passing from liver cancer on January 10, 2016.
