David Bowie/Various Artists - Lazarus (Original Cast Recording) [3LP] (180 Gram, gatefold, download, booklet)
180g 3LP Gatefold Package!
Lazarus is the original cast recording to the musical by David Bowie and Enda Walsh that debuted at the New York Theater Workshop in Fall 2015 preceding the release of David Bowie’s #1 debuting studio album Blackstar. The Lazarus album features stunning renditions of David Bowie’s songs performed by Michael C. Hall, Sophia Anne Grace and Christina Milioti. The album also includes the last 3 studio recordings of new songs recording by David Bowie and produced by Tony Visconti.
Standing alongside the Lazarus cast’s interpretations of classics from his canon are the three final David Bowie studio recordings. Co-produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti and recorded with Donny McCaslin and his quartet, the same band that played on Bowie’s Blackstar album, these last three songs — “No Plan,” “Killing A Little Time,” “When I Met You”— bring completely new dimensions to their cast counterparts. The original Blackstar version of “Lazarus” is also included on the cast album.
The Lazarus album was produced by the show’s musical director Henry Hey, who had previously worked with Bowie on The Next Day, and features vocals from Hall, Caruso, Cristin Milioti, Michael Esper, Charlie Pollock and other cast members backed by the seven-piece house band Hey assembled for the New York run. The album was recorded January 11, 2016. Upon arriving at the studio, the musicians and cast were shocked and saddened to learn that Bowie had passed away the evening before. Their emotional performances that day are captured on this recording.
