David Bowie's estate will release a posthumous album in honour of the music legend's 75th birthday next year.

The 'China Girl' singer died two days after his 69th birthday in 2016, after battling liver cancer for 18 months. He would be turning 75 on January 8, 2022.

And now according to papers filed by his estate, there are several releases in the works to mark the milestone.

Bowie's widow Iman and children Alexandria and Duncan are looking at releasing memorabilia and merchandise as well as music and videos.

"David's 75th birthday would have been a big deal, and the estate wants to mark it," a source said.

"Obviously they want to be careful to keep to stuff they feel David would have approved of."

It was also announced that Bowie's lost 2001 album Toy will be released later this year.

He had "revisited" his past material for the record, combining new tracks with updated versions of tunes from 1964 and 1971.

The collection will be released on November 26, including revisited gems like his debut single 'Liza Jane' as well as 'Silly Boy Blue' and 'You've Got a Habit of Leaving.'

The Toy box set will also come with an unplugged collection of 13 songs from the album.
