DJ Session: The Shapeshifting Sounds Of David Bowie10:02


In a special edition of the Here & Now DJ Sessions, music editor Lyndsey Parker remembers the wide-ranging work of David Bowie. The 69-year-old musician died Sunday after an 18-month battle with cancer.

Bowie left behind many different styles of sound, played out through personas as diverse as the late-1960s trippy Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke in 1976. His final voyage into an experimental jazz sound was "Blackstar," his album released Friday.

Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson joins Parker on a sonic journey through David Bowie.

Note: We have a Spotify playlist and an Apple Music playlist for our weekly DJ Sessions.
