The first trailer for the highly anticipated documentary, David Bowie: The Last Five Years, has just premiered.

The piece debuts in the US via HBO on January 8, two years after the icon's death on what would have been his 71st birthday.

HBO's documentary has captured Bowie's last run of creativity, in which he spent years planning an incredible multitude of music and art, some to release posthumously, before passing away of liver cancer in 2016.

The Last Five Years features interviews with the performer's bandmates, as well as longtime producer and friend Tony Visconti. The work was directed by Francis Whately, who also followed the star's career from 1970 to 1975 in a previous documentary.

The first trailer is an inspiring montage of Bowie images, citing his impact on the world and his beliefs in freedom of expression.
