Lazarus, a David Jones effort

(scott)-OK, once again, Jon S and John N send me the same effort (talk about great minds thinking alike!),
and once again I will use both of their submissions as John N sends me a good write-up, while Jon S sends us tracklists as well as a bonus album (see Bl4ckst4r below) thanks to BOTH of you fabulous gentlemen who help me to keep this here thing going, much love to you both!

And as I always say, one can never have too much David Jones!
(from John N) In the final months of his life, David Bowie wrote an off-Broadway musical called Lazarus.
A spiritual sequel to the 1976 film The Man Who Fell to Earth — which Bowie himself starred in — Lazarus opened to raveREVIEWS at the New York Theatre Workshop back in December. It was later commissioned for a run of London shows.
Along with 19 Bowie penned songs sung by the cast — including the near embodiment of Bowie himself, Michael C. Hall — the tracklist boasts 3 previously unheard recordings from the legend himself. According to Rolling Stone, “No Plan”, “Killing A Little Time”, and “When I Met You” were all written and recorded by Bowie specifically for Lazarus and are believed to be his final recordings.

(from Jon S)-Lazarus is a musical that is a sequel of sorts to The Man Who Fell To Earth... I think. I really don't know much about it at all other than it starred the guy who played Dexter. A cast album was put out a few days ago and on it are 3 unreleased songs by DB. Here are the soundtrack and a fan-compiled Bl4ckst4r complete edition with the 2014 versions of Sue and 'Tis Pity along with the new songs and the core songs.
