by Hadrien Turner

2016 has been a year tinged in sadness for many music lovers, with the death of David Bowie and Prince weighing particularly heavily. Despite Bowie’s final album having been snubbed for the 2015 Mercury Prize (in favor of Skepta’s Konichiwa), there is good news brewing as Parlophone will be releasing David Bowie Legacy on November 11, which will be chock full of all your favorite tracks.

In order to celebrate the upcoming release, Mick Rock, the director of the original “Life On Mars” music video (who also shot the “John, I’m Only Dancing” video) has updated the original cut, mostly by adding some leftover bits of black and white footage to create an epilogue.
Head over to The Guardian to watch the new classic as well as read Mick Rock’s recounting of the process of shooting with Ziggy Stardust himself.
