More new music is on the way.

One of David Bowie’s final studio recordings premiered today on BBC Radio. 

The cast album for Lazarus, the stage adaptation of Bowie’s 1976 classic The Man Who Fell to Earth, which premiered last year in New York and opens next week at London’s King’s Cross Theatre, will be released on Friday. The two-LP set features three new songs that were recorded with the Blackstar band and co-produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti.  

One of those tracks, “When I Met You,” debuted on BBC Radio 6 this morning. It’s a lunar eclipse of a love song—astral, surreal, and fading quickly. You can stream “When I Met You” here. Just skip to the 51-minute mark. 

Pitchfork reports that a second unreleased song, “No Plan,” is supposed to land online sometime today. You can preview two of the cast recordings from Lazarus via Apple Music. 

A previously unreleased Bowie album quietly arrived on Spotify in September. The retrospective box set Who Can I Be Now [1974-1976] features a second-song set, known as The Gouster, that was recorded between 1973’s Aladdin Sane  and 1975’s Young American but was ultimately shelved.
