David Bowie's legacy remains strong, as his final recordings are set to be released next month on his Lazarus compilation album. According to Pitchfork, we will be able to enjoy “No Plan,” “Killing a Little Time,” and “When I Met You,” songs that were only heard performed by the cast of the icon's musical.

The album's first disc features songs sung by the show’s cast that includes Michael C. Hall, and disc two will have the previously unheard Bowie recordings, which he did with the Blackstar band and were co-produced by the artist and Tony Visconti.

The news comes after the announcement that The Man Who Fell to Earth will return to theaters throughout England beginning Sept. 9 in celebration of its 40th anniversary. Future premiere are planned for the U.S. and Germany, but no dates have been revealed yet.

The Lazarus cast album is set to drop on Oct. 21 via ISO/Columbia/RCA. Prior to its release, Michael C. Hall will perform "Lazarus" at the Mercury Prize ceremony on Sept. 9 where Blackstar is nominated. Before that, watch Duran Duran's Simon Le Bon share a memory about David Bowie below:
