The estate of the late glam rock icon David Bowie is treating fans to something very special for his 75th birthday. Executors of the estate are finalizing the details of the new “Bowie 75” album.
According to the New York Post, paperwork filed in the name of the company handling the late singer’s business affairs, the new music may be accompanied by merch, memorabilia, and other goodies. Everything from books to artwork, glassware to shoes, and more was said to be included in the copyright and trademark filing.
Additionally, trademark protections for a new “Bowie 75” logo were filed. The Post‘s source said that the estate is doing their best to make sure the new releases would meet the singer’s exacting standards.
“David’s 75th birthday would have been a big deal, and the estate want to mark it. There is still a huge appetite for more material, recordings and all things Bowie. It’s a perfect time to release some. Obviously they want to be careful to keep to stuff they feel David would have approved of.”
After passing away in January of 2016, just two days after turning 69 years old, Bowie’s estate signed a deal with Warner Music to control most of Bowie’s massive song library. The deal includes the release of a box set of never-released material from Bowie’s archives.
