David Bowie Reportedly Learned His Cancer Was Terminal as He Filmed His ‘Lazarus’ Video 3 Months Before Death

7 January 2017 7:38 AM, PST | | See recent news »

The video for David Bowie‘s last single “Lazarus” — released days before the late singer lost his 18-month battle with cancer — hauntingly referred to death and rebirth. And in a new documentary about the 69-year-old music legend, the video’s director reveals Bowie learned his cancer was terminal while filming the video.

David Bowie: The Last Five Years, which premieres on British television Saturday, covers the final years of Bowie’s life — including his 2003-4 A Reality Tour, and the making of his 25th (and final) studio album Blackstar.

Directed by Francis Whately, it’s a follow-up to the 2013 documentary David Bowie: Five Years. »

David Bowie Music Video Director Says Bowie Only Discovered He Was Dying During Last 3 Months

6 January 2017 8:26 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

David Bowie’s final album “Blackstar” may not have been the singer-songwriter’s so-called death record. Jonah Renck, the director of the music video for Bowie’s single “Lazurus,” told the Guardian that the concept of the video was conceived before Bowie knew his cancer was terminal, and that it was his idea — not Bowie’s — to have the singer lie in a hospital bed for the video.

“I immediately said ‘the song is called Lazarus, you should be in the bed’,” Renck told the Guardian. “To me it had to do with the biblical aspect of it … it had nothing to do with him being ill.”

The shooting of the video took place around the time Bowie received his final diagnosis, roughly three months before his death last January.
