The No Plan EP was originally released digitally on January 8th, 2017 the day after would have been David Bowie's 70th Birthday. The release reached #1 on the iTunes charts of 11 countries including the UK, Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, Norway, Finland and Sweden, and broke the Top 20 in more than 30 territories. The No Plan EP is now being made available on CD and vinyl formats. The vinyl version is pressed on heavyweight 180g black vinyl that includes a special laser etching on side B and is housed in new artwork designed by longtime collaborator Jonathan Barnbrook.
The No Plan EP features the single 'Lazarus' from Blackstar, and the three final David Bowie studio recordings during the sessions for his 28th and final album Blackstar "No Plan," "Killing A Little Time" and "When I Met You." The track "No Plan" was hailed by Rolling Stone who ranked it at #4 in their 50 Best Songs of 2016 as "a magnificent coda... one last transmission from the Bowie universe."
Since the release of Blackstar, the album has only grown in stature, establishing itself as a critical and commercial high point of David Bowie's peerless catalogue. Having hit #1 in more than 20 countries (including Bowie's first #1 in the U.S.), Blackstar closed out 2016 with five Grammy nominations Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, Best Alternative Music Album, Best Recording Package, and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical as well as two Brit Awards nominations British Male Solo Artist and British Album of the Year (Blackstar) and top honors in critics' best of 2016 lists including #1 positions in the AV Club, Flavorwire, The Los Angeles Times, MOJO, Newsweek, Now, Paste, Q, The Wire, Uncut and more, #2 spots including the BBC, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, NPR and Rolling Stone, ultimately placing in the year-end lists of more major publications than any album released in 2016.

I'm thankful that David worked so hard in his last year, and I'm glad to be able to hear what he was working on in the months before his passing. Here's hoping that there's much more of David Bowie yet to be heard; I can think of nothing better than being able to share his music with my children and (someday) grandchildren. I hope they're all a bunch of beautiful rebels, just like David was.
Top international reviews
As with much of Bowie's later material, it doesn't hit you at first, but repeated listening is rewarded handsomely, and the unique nuances of both his songwriting and singing start to wind their way into your ears.
This is not the swan song of a genius, that was Blackstar, but because Bowie was a genius he deserves your attention and concentration. Maybe not everything he released was brilliant, but when you love an artist you follow their path, through the highs and lows, and enjoy the highs and try to understand the lows. This is neither a high nor a low, more a curiosity made more significant because of his death. Worth having, bit don't expect any genuine hidden gems.
1. Lazarus - Not sure I can find anything different from the version that appeared on Blackstar, and whilst it’s a great song it's only value here is to extend the EP by 6:22 minutes.
2. No Plan - Ooh nice, a Bowie ballad in the mode of Wild Is The Wind (great saxophone DB) that feels as though it could have been at home on The Next Day CD,
3. Killing A Little Time - What can you say, not a ground-breaker it’s a Bowie-by-numbers song that could come from any era, particularly the part where the musicians are all seemingly playing something different simultaneously.
4. When I Met you
- Good, again very Bowie, but from the 2000's with wonderful multi-layered Bowie voiced vocals that would have been difficult to re-produce on stage.
