Another David Bowie Boxed Compilation Is Coming Out This Year
There are so many iconic musicians the world has seen over the past couple of decades. Some of them have unfortunately passed but will never be forgotten because of the legacy that they have left behind, and that is their timeless hits.
The songs, as well as the life they have lived, are basically what inspires their fans, it is the kind of influence most musicians want to leave behind. One of the most influential artists of all time was David Bowie, and during the 20th century, he dominated the music scene and over years, he had managed to share his incredible talent in music to the world.
Bowie was actually known to be one of the best-selling recording artists of all time not just in the United States and the United Kingdom, but all over the world. In fact, the British singer had managed to sell more than 140 million albums, that also led to him being included on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was so big in the 60s till the first couple of years of the new millennium. He took a break but came back in 2013.
Last Album Before Passing
Even if there are so many new artists out there during the 21st century, Bowie still continued to do his craft and shared it to the world. In 2016, he even released a brand-new album entitled Blackstar in time for his 69th birthday. Unfortunately, just two days after that, he passed away in his apartment in New York City.
Turns out that the legendary musician had been suffering from liver cancer for more than a year, but it was kept a secret. Which is why it definitely shocked everyone when it was reported his sudden death. Bowie had been working not just on his album, but also on a musical entitled Lazarus with Broadway director Ivo van Hove.
The director actually revealed that Bowie found it very difficult to attend the rehearsals on the said play because he had been struggling with his illness. His cancer was stopping him from working but he actually tried so hard to fight through it.
His producer, Tony Visconti, also admitted the singer has always managed to fight through the pain he was going through at that time. Bowie lived his life by doing what he loved most and that is making music.
He worked so hard on his last album and turns out it was his parting gift to those who had always been there to support him after all these years, and for this who will continue to listen to his amazing music. His death even made the sales of his albums and singles rise up to the top, and this then led to some record labels compiling his hits and actually releasing limited edition sets in honor of the singer.
Parlophone is proud to announce David Bowie Loving The Alien (1983 – 1988), the 4th in a series of sets spanning his career from 1969. Among the studio and live albums from the period, LTA will also contain a new production of the 1987 LP Never Let Me Down https://t.co/0jcC3WLxQq pic.twitter.com/fKKGBp3hyq
