Parlophone Records is happy to announce that ‘ChangesNowBowie,’ a previously unreleased nine-track David Bowie album, is to be made available early for fans on streaming services to mark the original date of Record Store Day 2020, which was to feature the LP and CD but has now been postponed to 20th June.
‘ChangesNowBowie‘ is a 9-track album, recorded for radio and broadcast by the BBC on David’s 50th birthday on January 8th, 1997. This mostly acoustic session was a stripped-back affair featuring some of David’s favorites of his own compositions and was produced by Bowie himself, Reeves Gabrels, and Mark Plati.
Today, the previously unavailable ‘Repetition ’97‘ video filmed at the Earthling Tour rehearsals in Hartford, Connecticut by Tim Pope is available for streaming and download. The ‘ChangesNowBowie‘ audio version of the track will also be available to stream from the same date.
‘ChangesNowBowie‘ was recorded and mixed at Looking Glass Studios in New York in November 1996. Gail Ann Dorsey (bass, vocals), Reeves Gabrels (guitars, vocals), and Mark Plati (keyboards and programming) accompanied David on the recording.
The album will be released in limited quantities on LP and CD for Record Store Day on June 20th, 2020. The cover art for the album features a stunning black and white portrait of David by renowned photographer Albert Watson, taken in New York in 1996.
