The world is shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of Singer/Musician/Actor David Bowie late last night.

Bowie, who just turned 69 years old on Friday lost a private 18 month battle with Cancer. He and his family kept his sickness a secret.

Bowie just completed a new album called "Darkstar", which was also released on Friday.

Obviously Bowie knew he was losing his battle to Cancer.  The song opens with the lyrics "Look up here. I'm in Heaven!" You will see in the video,  Bowie in a hospital bed, a floating above it, and at the end, stepping backward into a wooden wardrobe and closing the door.

Tony Visconti, wrote on Facebook that Bowie's "death was no different from his life - a work of Art. He made "Blackstar" for us, his parting gift."

Here is the video for his first single "Lazarus" off the new album.
