(Classic Rock) The band that appeared on David Bowie's last studio effort "Blackstar" are set to pay tribute to the late music legend with their upcoming album, Beyond Now.

Saxophonist Donny McCaslin and his jazz group will release the record on October 14. The album includes covers of Bowie tracks "Warszawa" and "A Small Plot Of Land," among renditions of songs from other acts including Mutemath, Deadmau5 and the Chainsmokers.

McCaslin tells Entertainment Weekly: "Looking at him when I was playing in the studio and the conviction and the passion that he sang with, that's the same way that I play as a saxophone player.

He adds: "The title track Beyond Now is directly inspired by a song of David's that we recorded during the Blackstar sessions, but that didn't make the final record. All the originals were written last summer - before he passed away, but while the Blackstar recordings were still really fresh." Read more here.
