Two Of The Late David Bowie’s Final Recordings Have Surfaced [Listen]

first_imgOne of the last projects David Bowie completed before his death earlier this year was Lazarus, a musical that pulled from his vast and varied catalogue of songs. This Friday, October 21st, a compilation album of material from Lazarus will be released via ISO/Columbia/RCA.In addition to the official cast recording of the show and Bowie’s version of the musical’s eerily prophetic title song, the Lazarus compilation will include three never-before-heard Bowie studio tracks. The three songs–“No Plan”, “Killing A Little Time”, and “When I Met You”–were recorded with the same band featured on Bowie’s final album Blackstar (stylized as a solid black five-pointed star), and have only been heard as performed by the cast of Lazarus (which includes the talented Michael C. Hall).Today, two of those three recordings–“When I Met You” and “No Plan”–were played on BBC radio. You can listen to “When I Met You” here (at 51:00) and its gloomy, dramatic counterpart “No Plan” here (46:00). Both of the tracks were recorded with Bowie’s longtime producer Tony Visconti.You can see the full track list for the Lazarus compilation below:CD 1:01. “Hello Mary Lou (Goodbye Heart)” – Ricky Nelson02. “Lazarus” – Michael C.

This Week’s Picks! Al Pacino, A View from the Bridge & More

first_imgSavor One Singular Sensation RepeatedlyAvailable October 23The theme of rejection, uncertainty, and unemployment make A Chorus Line (celebrating its 40th anniversary) a perfect candidate for a revival. Until then, we’re going to have to bide our time. No, we don’t mean putting on a workplace version. Tim from HR in tights is a waking nightmare. Instead, available on CD and (fittingly) vinyl, is a remastered edition of the original Broadway recording that features eight bonus track demos. Enjoy a Glengarry Reunion at China DollStarts October 21 at Schoenfeld TheatreA new David Mamet play is a big deal. But when it starts the peerless Al Pacino—who nailed Rick Roma in the movie version of Glengarry Glen Ross—you get tickets at any cost. Dinner with your boss, a date with the super-cute neighbor across the hall, your cousin’s plumber’s niece’s sweet 16. Forget all that. You’re headed to see China Doll, which runs through January 31. Click for tickets! Hey, you, plotting your apple-picking trip! You know you can buy them in the grocery store, right? And unless you plan on baking through Christmas, there is no point to acquiring four-dozen apples. Thankfully, we have less aggravating and far more enjoyable options. There’s a new play from David Mamet, an old favorite from Arthur Miller and Billy Elliot on PBS. Get ready for this week’s picks! Take in A View from the BridgeStarts October 21 at Lyceum TheatreMark Strong is a classic “that guy” whom you have enjoyed in countless movies (Sherlock Holmes, Tinker Tailor Solider Spy). Well, you’re going to remember him now. Strong stars in the acclaimed West End transfer and Broadway revival of A View from the Bridge. Arthur Miller’s classic drama explores a Brooklyn longshoreman’s (Strong) rage over his niece’s romance with a recent immigrant. Click for tickets! Spend Your Weekend with Billy ElliotOctober 23 on PBSFinding theater-related content on television requires as much effort as looking for a new job. It’s a frustration endeavor that ends up with a grown man screaming catchphrases over sports highlights. Thank God for PBS. Today, TV’s smart, dignified representative delivers the goods as Great Performances presents Billy Elliot the Musical Live from the West End. What makes it special? Well, one of the original Billys (Liam Mower) returns, along with “25 current and former Billys.” Yeah! Let Kelly and Jarrod Educate YouOctober 20-23 at Feinstein’s/54 BelowIf you were talking to Jarrod Spector and Kelli Barrett, you’d ask way better questions than, “What’s it like being married to another artist?” Yet, the two newlyweds are asked that so often that it’s the basis of a new show. The standout performers try to provide an answer via songs from married musical duos—from Alan and Marilyn Bergman to Beyoncé and Jay-Z—in “This is Dedicated: Music’s Greatest Marriages.” Click for tickets!
