As we approach the third anniversary of the death of one of the world’s most influential musicians, it’s time to take a closer look at his work – song by song. David Bowie’s restless creativity captured the imagination of a generation. Blackstar, the album released two days before his death, became fifth best selling in the world that year. Now, the second saga of Bowie’s life leading up to Blackstar gets the detailed written context and narrative it deserves.

From ultimate Bowie writer Chris O’Leary comes Ashes To Ashes, the follow up to commercially successful Rebel Rebel detailing every song from 1976–2016. It hits everything from “Heroes” to the Labyrinth soundtrack, from his 1985 camp duet with Mick Jagger on “Dancing In the Street” to “Where Are We Now?,” his comeback single in 2013.

Along the way we encounter a vast cast of characters, weaving in and out of Bowie’s life and his music: Brian Eno, Nile Rodgers, Lou Reed, Freddie Mercury, John Lennon, Iman and many others. And we range across the globe from Bowie’s years in divided Berlin to his “exile” years in Switzerland through his final years as a New Yorker, recording within walking distance of his home.
