    David Bowie released his final studio album, Blackstar, just a few days before his death on January 10th of this year. The songs included on the album are considered as amongst the best the iconic artist ever released, however they are not the last pieces of work that Bowie recorded.

    With longtime collaborator, producer Tony Visconti, Bowie recorded three further tracks before his death. "No Plan," "Killing a Little Time," and "When I Met You," were recorded in collaboration with experimental jazz musician Donny McCaslin and his quartet, the band who feature as Bowie's backing band on his final album. As previously reported, all three songs will be released on the original cast recording of Lazarus, Bowie's musical, which is out this week.

    BBC 6 Music presenter Shaun Keaveny just debuted "When I met you" which you can hear, streaming by visiting the world exclusive stream and hitting the 51 minute mark. The track is driven and more sculpturally in line with straight rock than the jazz-based explorations on Blackstar. Lyrically the tone is as bold as the content of the final album. "The sun is gone / it's all the same," shares a vision of absolutism that resonates louder when considered aside the circumstances in which it was authored.

    Again on the BBC, presenter Jeremy Vine's show shared the second of the three unreleased tracks. "No Plan" can be heard by visiting the world exclusive stream and hitting the 46 minute mark. The tone, again is melancholic, and more traditionally arranged than the tunes on Blackstar. The lyrics are reflective, "Nothing to regret" sings Bowie in a retrospective of a life. Again, the potency of the song is magnified in light of Bowie's health at time of composition.
