New version of David Bowie's 'Sound And Vision' revealed – listen

Stripped back reworking by Sonjay Prabhakar appeared on TV advert earlier this year

A stripped-down remix of David Bowie's 'Sound and Vision' has been revealed online.

The new version of the 1977 'Low' album track was originally recorded for an Xperia Z smartphone advert by remixer Sonjay Prabhakar. Now, for the first time, a full length version of the sound is available for fans to hear, see above to hear the track now. The new version is still only 01:48 long but was uploaded to the official David Bowie YouTube page today (October 8).

A description of the song on YouTube reads, "By stripping away much of the original instrumentation to just leave Roy Young's plaintive piano, Mary Hopkin's backing vocal and the lead vocal, the song takes on a new reflective resonance." The 2013 version of 'Sound And Vision' is available to download now.

Meanwhile, former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy's reworking of 'Love Is Lost' will premiere on BBC 6Music at 8.50am on Thursday and will be available to stream on David Bowie's website from midnight the same day. The new mix, titled 'Love Is Lost' (Hello Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy For The DFA), is longer than 10 minutes in duration, it has been revealed.

Murphy's remix is set to appear on 'The Next Day Extra', the extended, three-disc version of Bowie's 2013 comeback album 'The Next Day'. Set for a November 4 release, 'The Next Day Extra' includes the original 14-track album, a 10-track CD of bonus songs and a DVD featuring the four videos made for the album: 'Where Are We Now?', 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)', 'The Next Day' and 'Valentine's Day'. The bonus CD features four previously unreleased tracks titled 'Atomica', 'The Informer', 'Like A Rocket Man' and 'Born In A UFO'. The bonus disc also contains 'God Bless The Girl', which was previously only released on the Japanese version of the album.

David Bowie stars on the cover of the new issue of NME, which is on sale nationwide and available digitally tomorrow (October 9).
