A documentary with never-before-seen footage of musician David Bowie, who died in 2016, can be seen on HBO from next spring. Prior to that, the film, which will be called Moonage Daydream, will premiere in cinemas, director Brett Morgen reports to Variety.

Last autumn it became clear that Morgen, who previously made the Kurt Cobain documentary Montage of Heck, is going to make a film about the British singer and actor. The American documentary maker is the first to receive permission from Bowie’s relatives.

The director is said to have gained access to Bowie’s personal archive, where he came across hundreds of hours of 16 and 35 millimeter footage. They are all first seen in Moonage Daydream. The film may premiere at the Cannes Film Festival next month, Variety writes.

Racial artist Bowie, also known as the musical genius, the chameleon, Major Tom or Ziggy Stardust, made world hits such as Space Oddity and Golden Years. He died of cancer six years ago after a year and a half battle.
