Tracks now available to incorporate into their videos include such Bowie hits as “Heroes,” “Space Oddity,” “Let’s Dance,” “Fame,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Life on Mars?”, “Ashes to Ashes” and more. For those eager to start using the tunes, they’re available in a dedicated playlist on the TikTok Sounds page.
In partnership with Warner Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment and the David Bowie estate, an account has been established in Bowie’s memory and the channel features videos from his life and work across over five decades.
“A pioneer in music and fashion, David was — and remains — a cultural icon,” TikTok said in a statement. “He was never afraid to push boundaries and was always first to embrace new technology to reach his global fan base.” Over the past few months, the social media app has been adding tracks from other notable British artists including the works of Queen, John Lennon and George Michael.
