Just days prior to his passing from cancer at age 69, David Bowie released his latest music video — which hauntingly refers to death and rebirth.
In the late star’s video for “Lazarus,” David can be seen lying in a hospital bed with gauze covering his eyes. “Look up here, I’m in heaven, I’ve got scars that can’t be seen,” the music icon sings in the clip. “This way or no way, you know I”ll be free.”

“Lazarus” is just one of seven songs on David’s 25th studio album, Blackstar, which was released on the singer’s 69th birthday, Friday, Jan. 8.
The news of David’s death was sadly confirmed via his official Facebook page on the evening of Sunday, Jan. 10. “David Bowie died peacefully today surrounded by his family after a courageous 18-month battle with cancer,” the statement read.
