David Bowie’s close friend and longtime producer Tony Visconti has said he’s in talks with the singer’s management team to release previously unheard Bowie material in the coming years. Visconti began working with Bowie in 1969 and produced his final album, Blackstar, which was released two days before his death in January.

Visconti said Bowie also told him that he had recorded five other new tracks, intended for a follow-up album to Blackstar. “I haven’t heard those songs yet,” Visconti told the Evening Standard. “I might actually have to help his managerial company to find them.”

"I have an idea where he might have recorded them, but there is also a lot of unreleased material from many albums. I think it’s logical that over the next few years, you’re going to hear a lot of stuff that you haven’t heard before."

"I’m in talks with his management and his label — there’s going to be some great Bowie stuff coming out,” Visconti added. Bowie was known to have a trove of material that has never been heard by fans before.
