Look up here, I’m in heaven/ I’ve got scars, that can’t be seen
Lazarus from Blackstar (2016)
David Bowie’s last album crowned his work as an unpathetical pure piece of art and poetry. Hunted by death the singer, actor, performer, writer produced seven tracks for his latest album Blackstar. They are full of cryptic lyrics hinting at the terminal nature of his condition. Bowie used the haunting lyrics of his swansong album as a parting gift to say goodbye following a secret 18-month battle with cancer.
