A source with knowledge of the project says that “the torch has been passed to him” from Bowie.


Kanye West is reportedly in the process of recording an album of David Bowie’s music.

According to reports, the US rapper hit the studio following the music icon’s death last week at the age of 69.

The album is set to feature a mixture of straight up cover versions of some of Bowie’s biggest hits as well as original songs featuring samples of the British star’s music.

A source told the Daily Star: “Some are straightforward cover versions with Kanye actually singing.

“On others he is rapping with his own lyrics over Bowie’s music.”

According to the newspaper, ‘Changes’, ‘Heroes’, and ‘Rebel, Rebel’ are among the tracks he has produced for the project.
