A live album recorded by David Bowie in 1995, 'No Trendy Réchauffé', was also released last month.
Music icon David Bowie’s previously unreleased covers of John Lennon’s 'Mother' and Bob Dylan’s 'Tryin’ To Get To Heaven' will be issued together as a 7″ single on January 8th, 2021.
Both tracks are getting an official streaming release next month on what would’ve been Bowie’s 74th birthday.
The 7” single is limited to 8147 numbered copies, referencing David Bowie’s birth date of 8/1/47.
1000 of those will be on cream-coloured vinyl available only from the official David Bowie store and Warner Music’s Dig! store.
Originally recorded by John Lennon for his 1970 album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, Bowie’s version of 'Mother' was produced by Tony Visconti in 1998 for a Lennon tribute that never occurred.
Bob Dylan’s original 'Tryin’ To Get To Heaven' was released on his 1997 album Time Out Of Mind.
His version of Dylan’s song was recorded during the mixing sessions for the 1999 live album LiveAndWell.com.
