David Bowie to reissue ‘Let’s Dance’ single on yellow vinyl

The 1983 single will be re-released to mark the 'David Bowie Is' exhibition opening in Melbourne

David Bowie will re-release his 1983 single ‘Let’s Dance’ on limited edition, yellow vinyl this summer.

The song, which originally featured on Bowie’s album of the same name and was a UK singles chart-topper, is now being reissued to mark the opening of the ‘David Bowie Is’ exhibition in Melbourne, Australia.

The AA-side seven-inch will include the original single version of the track, along with a live recording of the song taken from Bowie’s ‘Serious Moonlight’ tour stop-off in Vancouver, Canada. Both tracks have been remastered especially for the release, coming on July 16 and limited to just 550 copies at the Australian Centre For The Moving Image (ACMI) gallery.

Meanwhile, Bowie will also re-release his 1975 single ‘Fame’ for its 40th anniversary. ‘Fame’ featured on Bowie’s album ‘Young Americans’ and originally released on July 25, 1975. It will now be reissued as a limited-edition picture disc on July 24, backed by an alternate mix of fellow ‘Young Americans’ album track ‘Right’.

As well as this, it’s been revealed that David Bowie’s new musical stage show will feature new songs, with the project’s director claiming that the new material sounds as good as his classic tracks.

Bowie is working on a new stage show based on his 1976 film The Man Who Fell To Earth, which saw the musician playing the character of an alcoholic alien called Thomas Newton. The new show, co-written with Irish playwright Enda Walsh, is to be directed by Belgian director Ivo van Hove and will be titled ‘Lazarus’.
