While fans of David Bowie continue to mourn his tragic loss, his music lives on. Now, new music recorded by the legendary star in the months before his death is likely to released, it has been reported.

Producer Tony Visconti, who worked with Bowie on his final album Blackstar, revealed that there are five "great" unheard tracks in existence.

"I haven't heard those songs yet. I might actually have to help his management company find them. I have an idea where he might have recorded them," he explained.

He added that even more previously unreleased music recorded during sessions for other Bowie albums would also emerge in the coming years. "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," Visconti told The Evening Standard. "I'm in talks with his management and his label - there's going to be some great Bowie stuff coming out."

Bowie reportedly recorded and an entire album, titled 'Toy', in 2001 in between his albums 'Hours' and 'Heathen', which was never released, along with a catalogue of spare songs.

Bowie's box-set 'Five Years', which was released in 2015, included a double album of previously unreleased songs from 1969-73. It's thought the new music might be included in a second volume of box-sets spanning Bowie's career.

The new music could be made available to fans of the star as early as the autumn , NME reports

The music icon passed away on 10 January, two days after his 69th birthday and the release of final album 'Blackstar,' following an 18-month battle with cancer. His eldest son Duncan Jones announced the tragic news on social media, confirming that the music icon had succumbed to liver cancer. "'Very sorry and sad to say it's true. I'll be offline for a while. Love to all," he wrote, sharing a poignant photo of himself a child with his father.

Bowie will be honoured at this year's Glastonbury Festival in an official tribute.
