One Year Later, A Look At David Bowie's 'Lazarus' Video Goodbye

Remembering the icon one year after his death.

David Bowie left us with a heartbreaking parting gift prior to his death one year ago Tuesday, and it came in the form of a music video.

Bowie died Jan. 10, 2016 after a battle with cancer.

Just days before the music icon left this world, he unveiled the powerful clip for “Lazarus,” a track off his 2016 “Blackstar” album. The video finds a fragile-looking Bowie in a hospital bed, at points blindfolded. The accompanying lyrics hint at his cancer battle: “Look up here, I’m in heaven / I’ve got scars that can’t be seen.” 

In the ending shot, Bowie retreats into a wooden wardrobe and closes the door, making this more than just a music video.

This was Bowie’s goodbye.
