The vinyl will be released on Saturday 18th April as part of the exclusive list of titles only available in independent record shops.

To celebrate what would have been David Bowie's 73rd birthday, a #RSD20 release has been announced.

CHANGESNOWBOWIE which has been widely bootlegged for years but never available on record will be released in limited quantities on LP and CD for Record Store Day on 18th April, 2020. The cover art for the album will feature a portrait of David by renowned photographer Albert Watson, taken in New York in 1996. 

CHANGESNOWBOWIE is a nine-track mostly acoustic session which was recorded in 1996 in New York during rehearsals for Bowie’s 50th birthday concert at Madison Square Garden. The BBC broadcast the session the following year, on Bowie’s 50th birthday on January 8, 1997 by Mary Anne Hobbs featuring an interview and messages and questions from the likes of Scott Walker, Damon Albarn, Bono, Robert Smith and many more.

Today on Bowie's birthday (8 January), the first track from the session ‘The Man Who Sold The World’ has been released on streaming services. 

More details about the album will be announced shortly.
