Tunes for Tuesday: David Bowie’s Blackstar

David Bowie knew he was dying.

I spent all weekend trying to make heads and tails of the newest Bowie album. I didn’t know I was missing the biggest piece of the puzzle: that Bowie was dying of cancer, and he knew this was his final album. That he might not make it much past the albums release date, if to it. And just in case you think I’m exaggerating, his producers confirmed it was a “deliberately created and timed as a “parting gift” for his fans.”

Yesterday we posted “Lazarus,” the track that was released on Friday. So today we’ll start “Dollar Days.”

More below.

There are only eight tracks. We’ve already posted the title track “Blackstar” here, and “Lazarus” yesterday. Here’s “Sue (Or In a Season of Crime).”

Funnily enough “Tis a Pity She Was A Whore” was the track from this album that was trending yesterday.

And finally, Bowie’s farewell to us all, “I Can’t Give Anything Away.”
