The LAZARUS CAST ALBUM, featuring the cast and band of the original New York production performing their versions of the David Bowie songs from the show, is set for release October 21.
Standing alongside the LAZARUS cast’s interpretations of classics from his canon are the three final David Bowie studio recordings. Co-produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti and recorded with Donny McCaslin and his quartet, the same band that played on Bowie’s ★ album, these last three songs — ‘No Plan’, ‘Killing A Little Time’, ‘When I Met You’— bring completely new dimensions to their cast counterparts. The original ★ version of ‘Lazarus’ is also included on the cast album.
★ was shortlisted for the 2016 Mercury Prize and as part of the awards ceremony at the Apollo in London, Michael C. Hall performed ‘Lazarus’ with Henry Hey and the LAZARUS house band.
The LAZARUS CAST ALBUM was produced by the show’s musical director Henry Hey, who had previously worked with Bowie on THE NEXT DAY, and features vocals from Hall, Caruso, Cristin Milioti, Michael Esper, Charlie Pollock and other cast members backed by the seven piece house band Hey assembled for the New York run.
The album was recorded January 11, 2016. Upon arriving at the studio, the musicians and cast were shocked and saddened to learn that Bowie had passed away the evening before. Their emotional performances that day are captured on this recording.
Written by Bowie and Enda Walsh, directed by Ivo Van Hove and produced by Robert Fox, LAZARUS opened December 7, 2015 at the New York Theatre Workshop to great critical acclaim. LAZARUS begins its London run November 8 at The Kings Cross Theatre.
