Such a good song, love it.
Hate the greed behind these types of moves, love additional music from Bowie
Digging: Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness - Zombies on Broadway
Digging: Picky Picnic - Picnic Land
If I remember correctly it was Bowie himself who planned that.
I think posthumous would be a word than post mortem lol
@CzechyGuy So he did have a plan.
Great EP. No Plan is becoming one of my favorite Bowie tracks.
Sounds neat, def gonna listen to this soon. I don't see why they had to tack Lazarus onto it though, kind of annoying if you're gonna purchase this.
Digging: Son Volt - Trace
if I said I love it, I'd be lying.....hope it's a grower
No Plan is an awesome song
Never thought I'd say it, but agreed with Sowing 100%
gimme gimme gimme
Digging: Tara King Th. - The Tara King Theory
Perhaps they put Lazarus on the EP as the songs are from the Lazarus musical?
Yeah these are all bonus tracks from the Lazarus musical. Glad that there is now a more convenient way to listen to these songs even if the musical itself is great
Digging: Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
New EP aka family and record labels milking his legacy for all it's worth
Isn't it widely accepted that anything that's unreleased is stuff Bowie straight up didn't want released? So why release it?
this was planned already
Bowie had plans set in place for these releases before he died. This was authorized.
Digging: Gottfried Huppertz - Metropolis, Op. 29
Ah OK but I know his producer's said there's a treasure trove of stuff Bowie never wanted released, but might come out now.
Yeah, the plan set in place was to steadily release stuff over a five year period, which included this EP (and the five demo tracks that were meant to lay the groundwork of another album)
tbqh No Plan really overshadows the other two new songs
they're not bad, but they aren't exactly fantastic either
When I Met You sounds like Country Teasers and Killing A Little Time like Zu
Digging: Fred Frith / Darren Johnston - Everybody?s Somebody?s Nobody
Everyone saying this is a cash in or that he didn't want this music released need to wise up and do what is literally a minimal amount of research before mouthing off- he actually DID plan a series of posthumous releases that he authorised himself. He himself never- to my knowledge- spoke publicly about a body of music he absolutely did NOT want to be touched after he died- you're confusing the situation with Prince.
Glad to tracks are finally being released on as a Bowie release. Easily just as good (some better) than the tracks on Blackstar. Would love a deluxe Blackstar CD with all 11 tracks. 6/5
RIP Bowie, a big guy with a plan
