Producer Tony Visconti says he was misquoted over ‘new David Bowie album’ comment

'I didn't say new Bowie album 'soon',' says the producer

David Bowie producer Tony Visconti has said that he was ‘misquoted’ over recent comments made about a new album.

CNN had quoted Visconti as saying a new Bowie LP was on the cards (“There’s gonna be another album, definitely… soon,” they wrote). However, Visconti has now taken to Twitter to refute the comments, saying he was merely talking about the previously announced new song ‘Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)’ which features on a career-spanning greatest hits album, ‘Nothing Has Changed’, which will come out in November.

The song was recorded earlier this year and was produced by Visconti and is the only new material on ‘Nothing Has Changed’, which begins with Bowie’s first single ‘Liza Jane’ and includes material from the subsequent decades, including hit singles ‘Ziggy Stardust’ and ‘Life On Mars?’.

‘Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)’, will also be released as a limited-edition 10-inch single and digital download the same day as the album via Parlophone in the UK on November 17. The 10-inch will also feature another exclusive 2014 recording on the B-side: ”Tis A Pity She’s A Whore’.

September 23 will see the arrival of Bowie retrospective exhibition ‘David Bowie Is…’ at Chicago’s Museum Of Contemporary Art and the city’s mayor, Rahm Emanuel, has declared the day as officially belonging to the musician. In a proclamation, Bowie is hailed as “an undisputed global icon boasting a catalogue of 26 critically acclaimed studio albums,” whose “remarkable half-century career has bridged cultures and faiths while both transcending and fortifying the music, art, fashion & design, and theatrical canons.”
