SOUND AND VISION IS NEXT 40TH ANNIVERSARY PICTURE DISC“Don’t you wonder sometimes…” Originally released on Friday…

Posted by David Bowie on Sunday, January 1, 2017

After releasing the ‘Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976)’ box set featuring ‘lost’ album ‘The Gouster’ last year, the new picture disc marks the start of the 40th anniversary of Bowie’s ‘Berlin trilogy’. It is believed that a deluxe reissue box set featuring material from ‘Low’, ‘Heroes’ and ‘Lodger’ will follow later in 2017.

Meanwhile, today it was announced that Bowie’s ‘Blackstar’ was the highest-selling vinyl record of 2016 – helping to bring overall vinyl sales to a 25 year high. His final record sold more than double the number of copies of 2015’s biggest-seller, Adele’s ’25’.

A special tribute concert to David Bowie is set to take place at Brixton Academy to mark his birthday this weekend, featuring friend and actor Gary Oldman along with over 30 musicians that collaborated with Bowie throughout his career.
