A new limited edition picture disc from the legendary David Bowie has been announced, with a new vinyl release for ‘Sound And Vision’ confirmed.
The latest in a long-run of anniversary releases, the reissue of the lead single from Bowie’s seminal 1977 album ‘Low’ marks 40 years since its initial release – and will arrive on Friday 10 February.
Decorated with images from Bowie’s appearance in the film ‘The Man Who Fell To Earth’, the A-side features a remastering of the single, while the flip-side contains the stripped-back 2013 remix of the track by Sonjay Prabhakar.
After releasing the ‘Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976)’ box set featuring ‘lost’ album ‘The Gouster’ last year, the new picture disc marks the start of the 40th anniversary of Bowie’s ‘Berlin trilogy’. It is believed that a deluxe reissue box set featuring material from ‘Low’, ‘Heroes’ and ‘Lodger’ will follow later in 2017.
Meanwhile, it was recently announced that Bowie’s ‘Blackstar’ was the highest-selling vinyl record of 2016 – helping to bring overall vinyl sales to a 25 year high. His final record sold more than double the number of copies of 2015’s biggest-seller, Adele’s ’25’.
