"60 Minutes" has released footage of David Bowie from an episode on the star that was never completed. The prolific singer and composer passed away Jan. 10.

"Occasionally, '60 Minutes' begins shooting a story we never finish," says host Bill Whitaker. "That happened with our look at the life and music of David Bowie." The program had been documenting an episode with the singer while on tour in 2003. When he became sick, they were forced to stop filming the program. In the wake of his death, CBS dug through its archives to find the unreleased footage, including interviews, sound checks and an intimate recording session in Woodstock, NY.

Watch the footage below:

Mr. Bowie lost his battle with cancer earlier this year at age 69. He had recently made his musical theatre debut with the Off-Broadway production of Lazarus. The show was a collaboration with Tony-winning playwright Enda Walsh and director Ivo van Hove. Sold-out performances finished at New York Theatre Workshop Jan. 20.
