David Bowie's 'Aladdin Sane' to get 40th anniversary reissue
David Bowie's 'Aladdin Sane' will be remastered and reissued to mark its 40th anniversary this year.

Bowie's sixth album, and the follow-up to 1972's 'The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars', was originally released in April 1973. Produced in the wake of his post-Ziggy stardom, most of the tracks were written while on the road in the US.

The album was originally co-produced by Bowie and Ken Scott and recorded at Trident Studios in London and RCA Studios in New York. It would be the last album that the line-up of Mick Ronson (guitar, piano, backing vocals), Trevor Bolder (bass) and Mick ‘Woody’ Woodmansey (drums) would appear on and featured avant-jazz pianist Mike Garson.

The reissue is set for release on April 15 and was remastered by Ray Staff at London’s AIR Studios, who cut the original LP during his time at Trident Studios and has remastered Ziggy Stardust's 40th anniversary edition last year.

The tracklisting for the 'Aladdin Sane 40th Anniversary Edition' is as follows:

'Watch That Man'
'Aladdin Sane (1913-1938-197?)'
'Drive-In Saturday'
'Panic In Detroit'
'Cracked Actor'
'Time'
'The Prettiest Star'
'Let's Spend the Night Together'
'The Jean Genie'
'Lady Grinning Soul'
