Just days before his tragic death on Sunday, David Bowie released his final album, Blackstar, on his 69th birthday. The album featured the track “Lazarus,” which was accompanied by a music video that’s as hauntingly beautiful as it is eerie for fans of the iconic singer.
The video features the singer in a hospital bed as he croons the lyrics, “Look up here, I’m in heaven/I’ve got scars that can’t be seen/I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen/Everybody knows me now.”

Later in the song he addresses his seemingly imminent death with the lyrics, “This way or no way/You know I’ll be free/Just like that bluebird/Now, ain’t that just like me?”
While it’s unclear if the “Space Oddity” singer’s own feelings of grief over his secret battle with cancer inspired the song, the song was written for an off-Broadway play of the same name, inspired by the film The Man Who Fell to Earth, which starred David.
