Listen to Bowie's previously unheard renditions of the classic tracks below.
To mark what would have been David Bowie's 74th birthday, his previously unreleased covers of John Lennon's 'Mother' and Bob Dylan's 'Tryin' To Get To Heaven' have been finally made public – and are available to stream now.
Bowie recorded his cover of Lennon's 1970 track 'Mother' in 1998, with longtime producer Tony Visconti. The rendition was originally set to feature on a Lennon tribute album, which was ultimately shelved. The cover of Dylan's Time Out Of Mind track 'Tryin' To Get To Heaven' was also recorded in 1998 – while Bowie was working on his live album LiveAndWell.com.
The two new Bowie recordings are also being released as a limited edition 7" single, limited to 8,147 copies .
