A new David Bowie music video and EP fell to Earth on Sunday, which would've been the glam king's 70th birthday.

The video for the EP's title cut, "No Plan," shows a window display of old televisions that reveal the song's lyrics as a small crowd gathers on the sidewalk, mesmerized by the music and random flickering images of white static, birds, rockets and cityscapes. The name of the shabby store: Newton Electrical, a nod to the alien played by Bowie in the 1976 cult film "The Man Who Fell to Earth."

The EP features the last four songs recorded by Bowie prior to his death, one year ago tomorrow. All four tracks were included on the recently released cast album for "Lazarus," the 2015 musical that premiered shortly before he died of liver cancer on January 10, 2016.
