David Bowie fans are being given the chance to pick their favourite of his albums, a year after he died at the age of 69.
BBC Radio 6 Music is launching a listener vote to mark both the first anniversary of the music star’s death and what would have been his 70th birthday. Bowie was born on January 8 1947, and died on January 10 2016 after battling cancer.
The station’s presenters have compiled a shortlist of Bowie’s records which listeners can pick from, including Aladdin Sane, Heroes, Low and Bowie’s final album, Blackstar.

Fans can vote by going to bbc.co.uk/6music. Voting is open from 7am today until 7pm on January 6.
