Add your comment »

The expanded edition of David Bowie's comeback album will contain a remix by James Murphy of DFA Records.

Murphy who nailed his colours to the mast as a Bowie fan with such LCD Soundsystem songs as 'Never As Tired As When I'm Waking Up' and 'All I Want' has reworked 'Love Is Lost' as the 'Hello Steve Reich Mix'.

The Next Day Extra three disc collectors edition is released on November 4 and contains five unheard tracks as well as two new remixes.

The track list of the "companion" album runs: 'Atomica', 'Plan', 'The Informer', 'Like A Rocket Man', 'Born In A UFO', 'I'd Rather Be High (Venetian Mix)', 'I'll Take You There', 'God Bless The Girl', 'So She' as well as the Murphy remix.

A third disc will contain all of Bowie's recent videos

Normally I get hacked off by a quick re-release as it's obvious given such a short timescale that most of the contents would have been available when the original release came out.

This time, however, I'll happily cut some slack as I'm just pleased to have some more new Bowie tracks trotting along.

In spite of owning every Bowie album [apart from the LA Ziggy show disc], I deliberately sat out the feeding frenzy for "The Next Day" due to my observation that his last two albums for Columbia/ISO rolled out 2-disc variants some months after the initial release in order to stoke the xmas market fires. That "deluxe edition" with the 14 tracks didn't fool me one bit! I had made up my mind that I would wait the damned thing out until December and like clockwork..this. My money's too tight to buy the same album twice in a year. I've got to say, I'm feeling pretty smug right now. Now I'll see what the hubbub is about.
