David Bowie: Was Lazarus Bowie singing his epitaph?

David Bowie's album Blackstar was released two days before his death, and was intended as a "parting gift" to the world according to his producer Tony Visconti.

Visconti wrote on Facebook: "His death was no different from his life - a work of art. I knew for a year this was the way it would be. I wasn't, however, prepared for it."

BBC Radio presenter "Whispering" Bob Harris considers if one song on the album, Lazarus, could be considered the singer's epitaph.
