David’s Bowie’s estate has just issued a rare version of “The Man Who Sold the World”

David Bowie was incredibly prolific throughout his career, meaning that there’s still quite a bit of unreleased material lurking in vaults.

The latest gem from the people running his estate is a version of “The Man Who Sold the World” which was recorded for the BBC in November 1996 and aired on January 8, 1997, which was Bowie’s 50th birthday.

Yesterday, of course, would have been Bowie’s 73rd birthday.

And there’s more coming, too. A six-track EP entitled Is It Any Wonder. Another five songs will be released every week starting January 17. And after that will come ChangesNowBowie, a nine-track album due for Record Store Day 2020.
