Final album from legendary pop culture figure, David Bowie. Blackstar was recorded in 2014 and 2015 while Bowie was in the midst of an ongoing battle with cancer. He worked with longtime producer Tony Visconti to craft an album that includes elements of art rock, jazz, and experimental rock. Bowie's lyrics seem to revolve around his impending death as he grapples with his own mortality. If anything, Blackstar proves that Bowie continually pushed the envelope, refusing to cater to the expectations of critics and fans. Throughout his career he remained in the vanguard and left it up to us to catch up to him. Includes the songs: "Lazarus," "Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)," and "I Can't Give Everything Away." Seven tracks in all. Released by ISO Records on 180 gram vinyl housed in a die-cut sleeve with a full color booklet and download code.
