LOVING THE ALIEN (1983 - 1988) BOX SET
19th July 2018

davidbowie.com have just announced details of the DAVID BOWIE LOVING THE ALIEN (1983 - 1988) Box Set to be released in October via Parlophone...


Official Press Release: 19th July 2018 London

DAVID BOWIE - 'LOVING THE ALIEN (1983 - 1988)'

FOURTH IN A SERIES OF DAVID BOWIE BOX SETS - RELEASED 12th OCTOBER, 2018
11 CD, DIGITAL AND AUDIOPHILE 15 PIECE VINYL BOX SETS EXCLUSIVELY INCLUDE 'NEVER LET ME DOWN (2018)'
FEATURING NEW PRODUCTION 'ZEROES (2018)' (RADIO EDIT) AVAILABLE NOW AS A DIGITAL SINGLE


David Bowie Loving The Alien (1983-1988) Box Set Parlophone Records are proud to announce 'LOVING THE ALIEN (1983 - 1988)' the fourth in a series of box sets spanning his career from 1969.

The follow-up to the award winning and critically acclaimed DAVID BOWIE 'FIVE YEARS (1969 - 1973)', DAVID BOWIE 'WHO CAN I BE NOW? (1974 - 1976)' and DAVID BOWIE 'A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN (1977 - 1982)' will be released on 12th October.

DAVID BOWIE 'LOVING THE ALIEN (1983 - 1988)' will contain a brand new production of the 1987 album 'NEVER LET ME DOWN' by Bowie producer/engineer Mario McNulty with new instrumentation by Bowie collaborators Reeves Gabrels (guitar), David Torn (guitar), Sterling Campbell (drums), Tim Lefebvre (bass) as well as a string quartet with arrangements by Nico Muhly and a guest cameo by Laurie Anderson on 'Shining Star (Makin' My Love)'.

The eleven CD box, fifteen-piece vinyl set and standard digital download box set is named after the opening track from the 'Tonight' album and includes newly remastered versions of David's most commercially successful period 'LET'S DANCE', 'TONIGHT', 'NEVER LET ME DOWN (ORIGINAL and 2018 VERSIONS)', the live album 'GLASS SPIDER (Live Montreal '87)', the previously unreleased 'SERIOUS MOONLIGHT' live album, a collection of original remixes entitled 'DANCE' and the non-album/alternate version/b-sides and soundtrack music compilation 'RE:CALL 4'.

David Bowie Loving The Alien (1983-1988) Box Set Exclusive to each of the box sets is 'NEVER LET ME DOWN (2018)', a new production of the 1987 album. The seeds of this reimagining of the album were first sown in 2008 when David asked Mario McNulty to remix the track 'Time Will Crawl' and record new drums by longtime Bowie drummer, Sterling Campbell, along with strings. The track was issued on the iSelect compilation to much acclaim, and in the notes, for that record, David remarked 'Oh, to redo the rest of that album'.

Fast-forward to early 2018 McNulty entered Electric Lady Studios in New York with Sterling, Tim Lefebvre on bass, who was in the ★ (Blackstar) band and Reeves Gabrels and David Torn on guitars. All of the musicians had a history with David, so were a perfect fit for what now sound like brand new songs. Nico Muhly, whom Mario first met when they were both interns working for Philip Glass in 2001, has handled the string arrangements.

The re-workings have revealed 'Never Let Me Down' as a very strong collection of songs with a dark thematic thread running through them. Fans listening to 'NEVER LET ME DOWN (2018)' would be forgiven for thinking that they were listening to a brand new 'lost' Bowie record.

This 2018 version of the album will also feature newly 'remixed' artwork reflecting the album's subject matter and features unseen images from the original cover photographic session from the archive of Greg Gorman.

Also in each box is the never before released 'SERIOUS MOONLIGHT' live album recorded in Vancouver, in 1983. Originally mixed at the time by Bob Clearmountain, the double album captures Bowie on what at that time was his most successful tour. The artwork features shots taken by photographer Denis O'Regan.

Also included is the 2CD / 3LP 'GLASS SPIDER (LIVE MONTREAL '87)' album, making its debut on vinyl (which is exclusive to the LP box). The tour's innovative set and marriage of music and theatre has been cited as a big inspiration to acts in the 2000's. Speaking in 1991 about Glass Spider Bowie said, "It was the first time I'd had the opportunity to spend that kind of money and do shows like that! The first time since Diamond Dogs, anyway... I thought, right! Let's really spend some money! I had all these thwarted dreams of what I'd tried to do with rock 'n roll in the early '70s".

David Bowie Loving The Alien (1983-1988) Box Set David Bowie Loving The Alien (1983-1988) Box Set Exclusive to each box is 'RE:CALL 4' and 'DANCE'. The former a new compilation featuring remastered contemporary single versions, non-album singles, album edits, b-sides and songs featured on soundtracks such as Labyrinth, Absolute Beginners and When The Wind Blows. 'DANCE' features 12 contemporaneous remixes some of which are appearing on CD and vinyl for the first time and is named after an unreleased Bowie remix album that was originally slated for release in November 1985.

The physical box set's accompanying book, 128 pages in the CD box and 84 in the vinyl set, will feature rarely seen and previously unpublished photos by photographers including Denis O'Regan, Greg Gorman, Herb Ritts and many others as well as historical press reviews and technical notes about the albums from producers/engineers Nile Rodgers, Hugh Padgham, Mario McNulty and Justin Shirley-Smith.

The CD box set will include faithfully reproduced mini-vinyl versions of the original albums, and the CDs will be gold coloured rather than the usual silver. The vinyl box set has the same content as the CD set and is pressed on audiophile quality 180g vinyl. As well as 'Never Let Me Down (2018)', 'Dance' and 'Re:Call 4', both 'Serious Moonlight (Live '83)' and 'Glass Spider (Live Montreal '87)'.

ON THIS DAY...
17th July 2018

On this day, 21 years ago, DAVID BOWIE performed at Velódromo de Anoeta, San Sebastián, Spain during his Earthling World Tour in 1997. Support bands were Mansun and Placebo...

On this day, 29 years ago, DAVID BOWIE performed at Stade de l'Ouest, Nice, France in 1987 during his Glass Spider World Tour...

On this day, 48 years ago, DAVID BOWIE with Harry The Butcher (aka The Hype) performed at the Fickle Pickle Club (Cricketers Inn), Southend-on-Sea, Essex, England in 1970. Sharing the double bill were Aquila. The band only released one album on RCA. If you've got a spare 48 minutes take a listen. Not my cup of tea, but from 39.17 onwards it gets rather interesting. On the 'Third Movement: Where Do I Belong, Aquila (Conclusion)', can you imagine David Bowie singing this? - [Listen here]...

On this day, 53 years ago, DAVIE JONES and The Lower Third perform at The Witch Doctor (Marine Court), St. Leonards-on-Sea, East Sussex in 1965. Also on the bill were The Sultans...

RICOCHET: DAVID BOWIE 1983 - HARDCOVER EDITION
1st July 2018

David Bowie 1983 All set for publication on 1st November is the hardback edition of RICOCHET: DAVID BOWIE 1983 by photographer DENIS O'REGAN.

If like me, you can't afford the £3,000 special collectors' limited edition, you can now pre-order the alternative hardcover edition.

Synopsis: In 1990, on their third world tour together, photographer Denis O'Regan told David Bowie what inspired him to take up rock photography. 'It's because of you,' said Denis. He was inspired by Bowie's 1973 Ziggy Stardust concert at the Hammersmith Odeon. Bowie's response: 'Nah, you'll probably tell Bono the same thing tomorrow night.'

In Ricochet: Bowie 1983, the official photographer of one of the most celebrated musicians of all time reveals intimate stories and pictures that offer an exclusive insight into David Bowie the man and musician. Taken on the 'Serious Moonlight Tour' - Bowie's largest ever tour that took in 98 concerts in over 60 cities - Denis's photos provide a thrilling, intimate view of life on the road with a unique pop icon. From capturing the theatre and mime of Bowie on stage to unguarded snapshots of the artist at his most human, every single image in Ricochet was personally approved by Bowie himself, and the result is a music photography book like no other.

Witty, poignant, and beautifully produced, Ricochet is a rare and spirited look into the life of an inimitable artist, whose music and performances have inspired - and continue to inspire - generations of listeners around the world.

This hardcover edition of Ricochet: David Bowie 1983: An Intimate Portrait containing 320-pages and published via Particular Books is available to pre-order NOW!

(Update: Ed. Note: The price is listed at £21 £30 GBP for this particular edition on pre-orders).
