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.

Badgers look for polished performance against Panthers

first_imgAlready surpassing her total from a season ago, redshirt junior forward Paige Adams leads the Badgers’ offensive attack with four goals and one assist in just six matches.[/media-credit]In their last game before the Big Ten schedule begins, the Wisconsin women’s soccer team travels eastward Wednesday for their annual matchup versus in-state rival Wisconsin-Milwaukee.The No. 13 Badgers (5-1) have had problems with the Panthers (1-3-1) in recent years with only one win, three losses and a tie since head coach Paula Wilkins took over. Wisconsin will look to avenge last year’s 2-1 in overtime loss to Milwaukee.Wilkins said she knows Milwaukee is going to give Wisconsin everything they’ve got Wednesday night.“It’s always been a great in-state rival game for us,” Wilkins said. “Throughout the years we have exchanged wins and losses. They are always well organized. They are going to be very good and they are going to want to play. Their movement off the ball and ability to keep the ball is fantastic.”UW-Milwaukee, a member of the Horizon League, is currently on a three-game losing skid, with their last win coming at home against St. Bonaventure Aug. 19.Wednesday’s game with the Panthers marks the Badgers’ last contest before they enter Big Ten play.Wisconsin has every excuse to overlook the single-win Panthers Wednesday and look ahead to its gigantic Big Ten matchup with No. 11 Penn State Sunday. However, UW redshirt junior forward Paige Adams said she believes there is enough of a rivalry between the two Wisconsin teams to keep the Badgers from looking ahead to Sunday’s game.“I think just because it is Milwaukee and we have such a rivalry with them that no matter what, we are always focused on beating them rather than the game ahead,” Adams said. “I know Penn State is a big game but we take it one game at a time and that’s what we are going to do.”The Badgers have had no problems lighting up the scoreboard this year with 17 goals already on the young season, good for an average of nearly three goals a game. They will hope to keep their explosive offensive attack going against a Milwaukee team that have given up 15 goals in five games and has allowed three or more goals in its last four matches.Adams, who leads the team with four goals, hopes the offensive unit will improve on its fundamentals against the overmatched Panthers’ defense.“I think we just have to get back to the basic things that we got away from a little bit,” Adams said. “Like pressing as a group and recovering in transition. Those are some things we got away from in the last game, but we are going to get back there.”Milwaukee’s offensive squad has not posed much of a threat for opposing teams thus far, scoring only seven goals on the season while being shut out in over half its games.The shortage of goals for UW-M may be a result of the lack of experience on the team. Milwaukee has only four seniors on the 33-man roster, and only one of them is a forward. With a lack of experience in the offensive unit, the Panthers lack a veteran to take over the offensive burden. Amy Kauffung, with two goals on the season, is the Panthers’ only player who has scored more than one goal.The stagnant Milwaukee offense might be just what Wisconsin’s defense needs to get back on track. Wisconsin redshirt sophomore defender Alexandra Heller said the defense will need to stay focused for all 90 minutes in order for the defensive play to remain consistent.“The key to our defensive success is staying focused,” Heller said. “In the first halves of games we do really well and then we kind of drift off and lose our mentality. So I think we just have to make sure that we do the details right.”The defenders aren’t the only ones who want to see more stability. Wilkins said she hopes the game with Milwaukee will be a stepping stone in the entire team’s effort to remain consistent for an entire game.“The biggest thing for us is consistency,” Wilkins said. “I saw some things in the Illinois State game and then some things where our work rate just wasn’t high enough. So we are demanding more from each other to be better all the time, so that will be a big thing.”last_img read more
