david-bowie-lazarus-album-coverTwo previously unheard David Bowie songs, “When I Met You” and “No Plan,” premiered today (October 18) on the BBC. The recordings, among the last he recorded, will be released on the Lazarus cast album, as will a third track, “Killing a Little Time.”

To hear “No Plan,” go here  and scroll ahead to around the 46-minute mark.

And for “When I Met You,” go here and scroll ahead to the 41-minute mark.

The new tracks were written by Bowie for Lazarus, a stage show that opened in New York late last year. The show is based on Bowie’s 1976 film The Man Who Fell to Earth, in which Bowie played an alcoholic alien called Thomas Newton. The Lazarus cast album was produced by the show’s musical director Henry Hey, who had previously worked with Bowie on The Next Day and features vocals from cast members backed by the seven-piece house band Hey assembled for the New York run. The album was recorded January 11, one day after Bowie’s death.

Bowie’s three songs, however, were produced by Tony Visconti and use the same musicians that collaborated with the late classic rock innovator on his final album, Blackstar. The track “Lazarus” will also appear on disc two of the upcoming cast album. Bowie released Blackstar in January, just days before his death. The Lazarus cast album will be released as a 2-CD or 3-LP set on October 21st.
