David Bowie Treated to 'A New Career in a New Town' Box Set
The 11-CD set will include such albums as 'Low,' 'Heroes,' 'Lodger' and 'Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)'
Published Jul 12, 2017Following the release of Five Years (1969-1973) and Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976), a new David Bowie box set will arrive this fall.
A New Career in a New Town continues the late performer's chronological musical journey, covering 1977 to 1982, and it's due out on September 29.
The 11-CD set includes remastered versions of studio albums Low, Heroes, Lodger and Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps). It also includes the 1978 live album Stage, in both original and expanded versions.
That's not all, though; there's a newly compiled Heroes EP, an additional 2017 Tony Visconti remix of Lodger, and a new compilation called Re:call 3 that features single versions, non-album singles and B-sides. Included on Re:call 3 tracks from the BAAL EP, as well as the Australian single version of "Breaking Glass" and an extended version of "Beauty and the Beast." The latter is currently streaming, and you can give it a listen at the bottom of the page.
The CDs included in the set are designed as "faithfully reproduced mini-vinyl versions" of the original LPs, and are gold-coloured rather than standard silver. See a photo of the reproductions below.
In addition to all the musical goodies, there's also a 128-page hardcover book featuring rare and previously unpublished photos by the likes of Anton Corbijn, Helmut Newton, Andrew Kent, Steve Schapiro and Duffy, plus press reviews and album notes from Visconti.
