Legacy (The Very Best of David Bowie) (also known as Bowie Legacy) is a greatest hits album by British musician David Bowie, released on 11 November 2016 through Sony Music Entertainment in the U. S. and Warner Music Group in the UK and several territories.

The album's contents are mostly identical to the two-disc edition of Bowie's previous greatest hits album Nothing Has Changed (2014).[1] "Love Is Lost" and "Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)", which were present on Nothing Has Changed, are replaced by three new selections: "Lazarus" and "I Can't Give Everything Away", both from Bowie's final studio album Blackstar (2016), and the radio edit of the Heathen song "Slow Burn" (which also appears on the three-disc version of Nothing Has Changed).[2] Additionally, a previously-unreleased mix of "Life on Mars?" replaces the original version from Hunky Dory (1971), and was released as a single and a special music video to promote the compilation.[2]

A one-disc version, with a non-chronological track listing, was also made available in some markets.[1] A Vinyl LP is also available.
