David Bowie's last music video is a poignant meditation on mortality

Legendary artist and musician David Bowie passed away on Sunday at age 69.

But Bowie had been keeping himself busy during his 18-month battle with cancer, and released the music video for his final single, “Lazarus,” days before his death. It is a moving and haunting song, and, listening to it now, it feels like a reflection on life and mortality.

“Lazarus” is a song from his final album, “Black Star,” which was released two days before his death.
