Last October, the original New York cast recording of David Bowie and Enda Walsh’s musical Lazarus arrived on compact disc, vinyl, and digital download, with each format including a bonus EP of Bowie’s four new songs from the musical. “Lazarus” was, of course, already familiar from its inclusion on the artist’s highly acclaimed final studio album Blackstar. The cast recording premiered three more tracks penned for the show from the Blackstar sessions: “No Plan,” “Killing a Little Time,” and “When I Met You.” On February 24 (CD), April 21 (vinyl) and May 26 (limited edition die-cut white vinyl with lithograph), Columbia Records will roll out stand-alone physical editions of this EP under the title of No Plan. (The songs were previously available digitally by this name.)
The vinyl editions of No Plan have a laser etching on Side Two, while the artwork for all versions has been created by Bowie’s longtime collaborator Jonathan Barnbrook. A video for title track “No Plan” was released last month, and can be viewed here. Blackstar, the album, recently received three Grammy nominations including Best Alternative Music Album.
Currently, all three formats (ranging in price from $8.98 for the compact disc version to $35.98 for the deluxe vinyl version) can be pre-ordered now at Bowie’s official store, and the CD and standard vinyl editions are now available at Amazon.com!
