A brand new video for David Bowie‘s “No Plan” debuted yesterday, aligning with both the artist’s birthday today and the one-year anniversary of his death this week.
In the mysterious Tom Hingston-directed video, rows of televisions in the rain-slick display window of Newton Electrical – a nod to Bowie’s character in The Man Who Fell to Earth and Lazarus (the Bowie-penned musical that featured “No Plan”) – broadcast the lyrics to the song while an audience gathers and watches, transfixed, outside the store. The televisions also flash images of space travel, another ubiquitous theme in Bowie’s work.
“No Plan” was one of the three of Bowie’s final recordings – along with “Killing a Little Time” and “When I Met You” – with the singer’s version appearing on the Lazarus musical cast recording album. To mark Bowie’s birthday, those three songs, along with “Lazarus” from Blackstar, have been repackaged as the No Plan EP, which is available now on streaming services.

Happy birthday, Bowie, we miss you. The stars look very different today.
