David Bowie Posthumous Album 2020: This year, two new David Bowie records will be issued: a digital EP including previously unreleased versions of songs that will be published weekly, and a live session that will be released on Record Store Day in April.
The Man Who Sold The World, the first track from the David Bowie Is It Any Wonder? EP, was published on Wednesday to commemorate the singer’s 73rd birthday, with a new song being released digitally every week until the EP is completed.
It will be released later this year, and it was originally broadcast on Radio 1 by Mary Anne Hobbs, as part of the ChangesNowBowie live session, which was recorded in 1996 during rehearsals for David Bowie’s 50th birthday show at Madison Square Garden.
It is not known what songs will be included on each recording, while Parlophone Records has stated that the Is It Any Wonder? The EP will include previously unreleased versions of songs from David Bowie’s back catalog that were recorded by him in the 1990s, according to Bowie.
Two previously unreleased David Bowie songs will be released later this year, one as a streaming-only EP and the other as a physical album, the latter of which will be released on April 18, 2020, which is known as Record Store Day in the United States.
In the EP’s title, “Is it any wonder?” is the opening track, an acoustic rendition of “The man who sold the world,” which can be heard now on music streaming services such as Spotify and iTunes. The song’s release commemorates both Bowie’s 73rd birthday, which would have occurred on Tuesday, and the 50th anniversary of the song’s creation and recording, which occurred in 1968.
Record label Parlophone will release the remaining five songs from the EP on a weekly basis starting on January 17, 2020, with the first release scheduled for January 17, 2020. The identical version of “The man who sold the world” will also be featured in the other release, a 9-track album named “CHANGESNOWBOWIE,” which will be released on LP and CD in limited quantities on Record Store Day. The album will be released on LP and CD in limited quantities on Record Store Day.
Parlophone Records has announced two new David Bowie albums, with previously unreleased songs being distributed digitally on a monthly basis starting on January 17. The albums will be published on vinyl and CD on January 17.
One of the tunes on the album is a rare rendition of The Man Who Sold The World, which was released on Wednesday in honor of David Bowie’s 73rd birthday, which would have been today.
While preparing for Bowie’s 50th birthday show at Madison Square Garden in November 1996, the song was recorded and mixed at Looking Glass Studios in New York, where it received a favorable reception.
Among those who joined the iconic singer-songwriter for the rehearsal session was Gail Ann Dorsey (bass), Reeves Gabrels (guitar) of The Cure, and Mark Plati, who played the keyboards (keyboard and programming).
