On January 8 2018, on what would have been David Bowie's 71st birthday, HBO is set to release a brand new documentary dedicated to the final years of the late Starman.
Entitled David Bowie: The Last Five Years the new film by documentary-maker Francis Whately – who also gave us David Bowie : Five Years back in 2013 – will follow the artist's journey as he released his last two albums The Next Day (2013) and Blackstar (2015).
Beyond interviews with those closest to Bowie, including producer Tony Visconti and musicians Earl Slick, Gail Ann Dorsey and Carlos Alomar, The Last Five Years will also feature rare interviews with Bowie himself.
Speaking of his creative process in the trailer, Bowie notes:
"Always go a little further into the water than you feel you’re capable of being in and when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about in the right place to do something exciting."
Still sorely missed, we can't wait to hear more of the late star's words of wisdom. Catch David Bowie: The Last Five Years in January 2018 on HBO.
