David Bowie

This Friday (Oct. 21) the cast album of David Bowie’s Lazarus musical hits stores, bringing with it three previously-unheard studio recordings from the singer's final album, Blackstar. Two of those Tony Visconti-produced gems were unveiled on Tuesday (Oct. 18) on BBC Radio.

Head over here to hear “No Plan” at 46:10 and here for “When I Met You” at the 51:00 mark. 

The third and final unreleased song -- “Killing a Little Time” -- has not yet been revealed. 

Previously, these had only been heard within the Lazarus musical, which premiered in late 2015 in New York City. Those cast versions -- in addition to theatrical takes of the Blackstar album cuts and Bowie classics like “Changes” -- are also available on the dual-disc cast album due out this week. Find the full track listing for the Lazarus cast album here.

All three previously-unreleased songs were made with the Blackstar band and producer Tony Visconti. David Bowie passed away on Jan. 10, a day before the cast recordings found on the new release were made. 

The Lazarus musical will make its London premiere Oct. 25 at King’s Cross Theatre, with dates scheduled through Jan. 21, 2017.
