David Bowie’s “No Plan” video and EP unveiled on the day before his birthday

A new video for “No Plan” was revealed on the occasion of what would have been David Bowie’s 70th anniversary.

2016 was marked by the great glam-rock icon David Bowie’s death, following the release of his unanimously acclaimed album Blackstar. The LP came out last year on January 10, on the day of his 69th anniversary. A year later, unpublished works from the musical Lazarus’ soundtrack, his ultimate creative project staged at London’s King’s Cross Theater, are unveiled. A five-track EP featuring Lazarus, Killing A Little Time, Outside, When I Met You and No Plan, which comes with an original tribute video. Directed by Tom Hingston, the clip refers to The Man Who Fell From Earth’s extraterrestrial character Thomas Newton, since it features the front of a store called Newton Electrical.

11 sumptuous images by Arca

Music Aged 31, Arca is perfectly at home on all registers and brings her own brutality to the crystalline creations of Björk, has collaborated with Kelela, Frank Ocean and FKA twigs, and composes for Kanye West, who refuses to surround himself with rappers. Her strength? Injecting elements of scholarly music into contemporary productions, mixing the codes of opera with the devastating electronic productions of a SOPHIE, philharmonic orchestrations with the minimalist drone of a Oneohtrix Point Never. In short, an exploration of urges, a hyper-sexualisation that is never prosaic and a sovereign randomness that governs most of her compositions.   “Has Arca anticipated the music of tomorrow?” Aged 31, Arca is perfectly at home on all registers and brings her own brutality to the crystalline creations of Björk, has collaborated with Kelela, Frank Ocean and FKA twigs, and composes for Kanye West, who refuses to surround himself with rappers.
