An official announcement on Facebook says that Bowie 'supplied a brief backing vocal' on the track
A message posted on Bowie’s official Facebook page this evening said: “We can confirm that David Bowie has supplied a brief backing vocal on the James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) produced track (no saxophone though), which is being issued under the alias of The Reflektors in the reflekting sleeve pictured here.”
The post also solves the mystery of the single sleeve for the release, which appeared to feature an album tracklisting. These ‘track names’ are apparently lyrics from the new release. “The reverse of the sleeve is designed to look like it has an album tracklisting for the upcoming album due on October 28, but it is in fact just snippets of lyrics from Reflektor,” says the message.
