40th anniversary Diamond Dogs AA-side out in June

Following the 'Rock 'n' Roll Suicide' and '1984' picture discs released for Record Store Day, David Bowie has announced another: 'Diamond Dogs' will be out as a AA-side single on June 16 via Parlophone. Marking the single's 40th anniversary, it'll come backed with the recording of Bowie performing the track at Philadelphia's Tower Theater in 1974, taken from the 2005 reissue of David Live. Picture-wise, the A-side is an outtake from the 1975 Terry O'Neill shoot (above), with a rare shot from the 1974 U.S. tour on the flip side.
