On January 8, 2022, Pop icon David Bowie would have celebrated his 75th birthday, had he still been alive. However, the Starman singer passed away a few years ago due to liver cancer. His family and estate are planning a posthumous mega celebration next year by releasing a new album and select merchandise.
According to The Sun, the Jones/Tintoretto Entertainment Company, the estate’s business has filed paperwork that indicates that musical and video releases will be available. It also reported that his widow Iman and children Alexandria and Duncan were looking into the possibility of releasing merchandise and memorabilia.
Some of the selected pop star related merchandise could include
collectors’ books and artwork.
There is also a submission for a logo for trademark and copyright approval. The logo has the pop star’s name and age namely “Bowie 75” using his iconic lighting bolt emblem. Bowie died in January 2016, two days after he was 69 years old.
Although the Suffragette City singer had liver cancer, he didn’t reveal his condition and continued working. His final record was Blackstar as well as a musical called Lazarus. However, he left behind unreleased material. His family brokered a new deal with Warner Music.
Warner Music now owns the entire collection of the Life on Mars singer’s back catalog. This collection also has a set with material that has not as yet been released.
A source told The Sun said that David’s 75th birthday would have meant a lot and so the estate wanted to commemorate it.
The source also said that there was a huge market for everything Bowie including material and recordings. The upcoming anniversary was a perfect time to release some of the material.
The source added that obviously they wanted to be careful to “keep the stuff” that they felt “David would have approved of.”
One unreleased album is called Toy. It was recorded in 2001. It was not available officially to fans. Fans are looking forward to release of David Bowie’s select songs and unreleased songs as a celebration of his 75th birth anniversary.
