The mayor said that a new road near Austerlitz station in the southeast of the French capital would be named after the icon. Revealing that Bowie “had a strong link with the city of lights,” Coumet added that “the naming must be approved by the Paris council in February,” something he says normally happens without a problem.

Last week (January 10) marked the fourth anniversary of Bowie‘s death. The singer’s 48-year-old son, Duncan Jones, and wife of almost 24 years, Iman, paid tribute to him in a series of touching social media posts.
