David Bowie remains to be a popular artist even after his death. Parlophone Records has announced two new albums by David Bowie, with never-before-heard songs being released digitally on a weekly basis.

Among the tracks to be released is a rare version of ‘The Man Who Sold The World’, which went live on 8 January in observance of what would have been Bowie’s 73rd birthday. The hit song will also appear in ‘CHANGESNOWBOWIE’ the nine-song physical CD recorded in 1996 while Bowie was rehearsing his 50th anniversary birthday show at Madison Square Garden.

The live session is expected to hit brick-and-mortar music stores on 18 April, and the cover art for the album will feature a portrait of Bowie by renowned photographer Albert Watson, taken in New York in 1996. Meanwhile, the other five songs will be released on a weekly basis from 17 January 2020.

In addition to getting two posthumous records, Bowie will be honored in the upcoming film Stardust. The musician will be portrayed by British actor Johnny Flynn in the movie, which will follow how the music artist created his iconic stage character Ziggy Stardust in the early 1970s.
