On David Bowie’s 69th birthday, he gave the world a final gift in the form of Blackstar, a thoughtful, jazzy, and futuristic new album. Blackstar was released on January 8th, 2016, just days before the pop culture icon’s death. Among the most notable tracks on the powerful but bittersweet record are the 10 minute long “Lazarus” and the unpredictably upbeat “Dollar Days”. Blackstar is as forward thinking as it is reflective, the perfect farewell if there ever was one.
