Saturday (8 January) marked David Bowie's 75th birthday, and to pay tribute to the late artist, Madame Tussauds London announced that a new Bowie figure will be joining the museum chain.

According to Madame Tussauds, the Bowie figure has been created "using measurements and images from his original sitting in 1983", and the figure will join their forthcoming "music zone", which launches later in 2022.

Madame Tussauds London General Manager Tim Waters said, "David Bowie is one of music’s greats. On what would have been his 75th birthday the most fitting tribute for Madame Tussauds London to give to our old friend is the creation of a new figure."

"His music inspired the masses and, for so many, changed the way they viewed themselves, and we hope remembering him here will ensure that it continues to do so for centuries to come," Waters added. "We felt privileged to work with him back in the ’80s and are just as honoured to work with his estate now to continue the legacy of this truly outstanding music career."

Last week Spoon released a cover of David Bowie's "I Can’t Give Everything Away".
