David Bowie‘s ‘Aladdin Sane’ is getting a vinyl reissue to commemorate its 45th anniversary.
The icon’s sixth studio album was initially released on April 20 1973, with this new reissue coming on April 20 of this year – a full 45 years after its initial release. Pressed onto silver vinyl, the record will only be available from ‘bricks and mortar’ record shops, according to a press release.
In addition, CHANGESTWOBOWIE – his 1981 compilation album – will also get a vinyl repress. That’s due on April 13, 2018, with CHANGESONEBOWIE being added to streaming services on that same day.
Five more albums from David Bowie‘s back catalogue are also being reissued on vinyl this month.
Last year saw the release of a new box set titled ‘A New Career In A New Town (1977-1982)’, which collected all of his releases from that time period.
Now, five albums that were included in that collection are being reissued individually on 180-gram vinyl. ‘Low’, “Heroes”, ‘Lodger’, ‘Scary Monsters’ and ‘Stage’ – a live album from the mid-’70s – will be re-released on February 23 via Parlophone.
None have been available individually on vinyl since 1991, according to Spin.
Meanwhile, Iman, former model and Bowie’s widow, marked the second anniversary of the star’s death with a touching social media post.
Posting on Instagram last month (January 10), the model added two new photos of tattoos. The first is seemingly a photo of the forearm of the couple’s 17-year-old daughter, Alexandria “Lexi” Jones. The tattoo depicts a jewelled moon alongside the word “Daddy xxx”, and the years of Bowie’s life (1947 – 2016).
