David Bowie (1947–2016) was an English singer-songwriter who recorded over 400 different songs during his over 50-year career.[a] Bowie worked with numerous artists throughout his career, including producers Tony Visconti, Brian Eno and singer Iggy Pop, and was the primary songwriter for many of his songs; he recorded cover versions of songs by artists including the Who, the Pretty Things and the Yardbirds. Beginning his career under the name Davy Jones, Bowie released singles with multiple backing bands, including the King Bees and the Lower Third, all of which went generally unnoticed.[1] Following his psychedelic pop-influenced self-titled debut album in 1967,[1] he released his first successful single "Space Oddity",[2] which introduced the fictional astronaut Major Tom.[b] He then released his folk rock-inspired second self-titled album in 1969,[7] the hard rock The Man Who Sold the World (1970) and the art pop Hunky Dory (1971),[1] which represented an artistic breakthrough for Bowie,[8] containing songs such as "Changes" and "Life on Mars?".[9][10]

Starting in 1972, Bowie developed several personas that he used to enhance his music. The first of these, the bisexual alien rockstar Ziggy Stardust,[11] was showcased on The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972).[11][12] Backed by the successful single "Starman",[13] the album launched Bowie to international stardom and introduced his glam rock style, evident on "Moonage Daydream" and "Suffragette City".[12][14] Bowie continued the Ziggy persona in 1973 on Aladdin Sane and the covers album Pin Ups,[1] retiring the persona and ending his glam rock era after Diamond Dogs (1974).[15] Young Americans (1975) showcased Bowie's interest in soul and R&B music, as well as funk ("Fame").[16][17] Bowie introduced his next persona, the Thin White Duke, on Station to Station (1976), commonly known as the musical transition between Young Americans and his experimental Berlin Trilogy,[18] consisting of Low (1977), "Heroes" (1977) and Lodger (1979).[19][20] Working with Eno and Visconti,[20] Low featured songs influenced by electronic and ambient music,[21] "Heroes" expanding upon Low with a more art pop sound (prominently on its well-known title track),[22] and Lodger marking the partial return to his previous drum and guitar-based rock sound, with elements of new wave and world music present.[19][23] Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) (1980) was a culmination of his 1970s works and featured the singles "Ashes to Ashes" and "Fashion".[24][25] Bowie then recorded "Under Pressure" with Queen and the title track for the 1982 film Cat People.[1][26]

Bowie reached his commercial peak with Let's Dance (1983),[27] which featured post-disco and dance songs, as evident on its title track.[28] After a period of less musically successful projects throughout the 1980s,[c][32] Bowie briefly halted his solo career to record with the band Tin Machine, who explored alternative and grunge styles before the genres were particularly well-known; the band dissolved in 1992 and Bowie resumed his solo career.[33] Black Tie White Noise (1993) marked a creative resurgence for Bowie, featuring songs influenced by soul and jazz music, and made prominent use of electronic instruments.[34][35] Following the soundtrack The Buddha of Suburbia,[1] Bowie experimented with industrial rock on Outside (1995),[36][37] and drum and bass and jungle music on Earthling (1997),[38] ending the 1990s with the rock album Hours (1999).[39] Bowie reunited with Visconti for the rest of his career, releasing the rock albums Heathen (2002) and Reality (2003) before taking a break from music.[1] His final releases were the rock album The Next Day in 2013,[40][41] the song "Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)" in 2014,[d][43] and his final album Blackstar in 2016, before his death of liver cancer two days after its release.[44] The art rock and jazz album was Bowie's intended swan song, featuring several lyrics that revolved around his impending death.[44][45][46] Three new songs from the Blackstar sessions ("No Plan", "Killing a Little Time" and "When I Met You") were released on the EP No Plan in 2017.[47]
