When David Bowie tragically passed away in 2016, it was truly the end of an iconic era. The singer battled cancer and died two days after turning 69. However, the “Rebel Rebel” singer’s legacy is far from over. To mark Bowie’s 75th birthday in January, his estate will release an album posthumously to celebrate.
Further, while fans can get excited about the collection of songs – which will include new music and reimagined takes of former hits – the estate will also release limited memorabilia, merchandise and unseen video collections.
According to the Daily Mail, a source said that, “David’s 75th birthday would have been a big deal, and the estate want to mark it. There is still a huge appetite for more material, recordings and all things Bowie. It’s a perfect time to release some. Obviously [the estate] want to be careful to keep to stuff they feel David would have approved of.”
The entire project will be released early next year for the singer’s January 8 birthday. It’ll not only be a way to celebrate the rock legend, but fans can relive his greatest hits and new tunes.
Further, the album will come after the release of Bowie’s lost 2001 album entitled “Troy.” The record is set to release November 26. It will also feature new music as well as “re-visited and re-examined” tunes from between 1964 and 1971. There are bound to be some stunners in there.
David Bowie and Iman
While David Bowie’s career is filled with major hit records, awards and iconic historical moments, his love for his wife Iman is perhaps one of his greatest accomplishments.
The two met in the 90s and fell in love. It was a classic rocker-supermodel pairing. While there was speculation the relationship would be high profile and public, the two kept their union away from the public. This kept them grounded and strong.
“Every day we went and did different things and the press never knew! It’s absurd this idea that celebrities can’t be anonymous,” the model said.
Iman is not only one of the most famous supermodels of all time, she’s also a philanthropist and volunteer taking on poverty and children’s needs.
To this day, she celebrates her marriage to Bowie, which lasted until he died in 2016.
“David is in our hearts and minds on a daily basis, for all of us. You know, this was my true love. My daughter once asked me if I would ever marry again and I said, “never” … He’s hiding in plain sight. His fans are still around, his music is still relevant. And on the day of his passing, I went on a hike and a bluebird flew in front of me. A bluebird, above all things!” Iman said in an interview with Bazaar.
