Unreleased David Bowie Music Could Be Coming Soon

David Bowie is set to posthumously release a torrent of new music.

Bowie died in January aged 69, following a short battle with cancer. His passing shocked the world as the singer had released his critically acclaimed 26th album, Blackstar, on his birthday – just two days before his death. He’d also kept his illness a secret.

However Bowie fans are in for a treat, according to the late star’s friend and longtime producer Tony Visconti, who confirmed he is in talks with Bowie’s management to bring out previously unreleased tracks.

“I haven’t heard those songs yet,” he admitted to Britain’s Evening Standard newspaper. “I might actually have to help his managerial company to find them. I have an idea where he might have recorded them, but there is also a lot of unreleased material from many albums.

“I think it’s logical that over the next few years, you’re going to hear a lot of stuff that you haven’t heard before. I’m in talks with his management and his label – there’s going to be some great Bowie stuff coming out.”

Before the new Bowie songs come out, Tony is keeping himself busy with TV talent show Guitar Star, which aims to find the best guitarists in the U.K. His aim for the show is to dispel the myth that a “fairy godmother” has the ability to make the talentless famous.

Tony also blasted the music industry for mass producing cookie-cutter teen idols, who all sound the same.

“This ‘manufactured’ stuff is selling less and less,” he vented. “A person like Alanis Morissette – Jagged Little Pill sold 45 million copies worldwide. Nowadays if you sell three million, which would put you in the Taylor Swift bracket, the record business people start jumping up and down. These aren’t sales to congratulate yourself on.

“In the ‘60s up to the ‘90s, what sold records was quality. Virtuosity was respected. People like that aren’t respected any more. But they still exist — they walk among us!”
