"They call certain cancerous lesions black stars, so there's a chance that the title of the album was a hint that he was dying," Rolling Stone editor Andy Greene told ET. "In 'Lazarus,' he's in an actual hospital bed, so it seems to be, when you look at all this in hindsight, it's clear it's meticulously planned final statement album of a man who knew he was dying."

Bowie's last public appearance was in New York last month at the premiere of the Off-Broadway play, Lazarus, which he co-wrote. While he appeared to be healthy at the time, there have been reports that he collapsed moments after his arrival and was battling liver cancer.

"I think in his final years, he wanted to just be with people who were close to him," Greene told ET.

Details about Bowie's funeral have not been announced, but in March, there will be a David Bowie tribute concert at Carnegie Hall.

"The show is going to be great and it's a performance of 20 different voices interpreting Bowie," concert producer and CEO of City Winery Michael Dorf told ET. "It's something special for a fan."
