Bowie Live stream with text

David Bowie’s new box set A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN (1977 – 1982) drops on 9/29 and in honor of the occasion a special event at the world-famous Hansa Studios in Berlin will be livestreamed on Bowie’s facebook page today (9/26) at 2pm (Eastern time).

Here’s the link to watch

The live event will feature a Q&A session with guests including Carlos Alomar (Bowie’s guitarist from 1974 to 1987), Edu Meyer (the former sound engineer at Hansa Studios), and Chris Duffy (son of photographer Brian Duffy, and director of the Duffy Archive) who will be discussing Bowie’s work from 1977-1982. David’s Facebook page will also be featuring previously unheard audio streams on the day of the event.

Hansa Tonstudio, or “Hansa By The Wall” as it came to be known, was where Bowie recorded parts of his ground-breaking Low album along with ‘Heroes’, which celebrates it’s 40th anniversary this month.

DAVID BOWIE A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN (1977 – 1982) is the third in a series of boxed sets spanning David Bowie’s career from 1969.

The eleven-CD box, thirteen-piece vinyl set and the Mastered For iTunes and standard digital download set is named after a track from the first of the so-called “Berlin Trilogy,” includes Low, ‘Heroes’, Stage (Orignal and 2017 Versions), the former in the vinyl box will be pressed on yellow vinyl, replicating its original limited edition U.K. release and the latter of which featuring two previously unreleased tracks, Lodger, Lodger (Tony Visconti 2017 Mix), Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), Re:Call 3 (featuring contemporary single versions, non-album singles, b-sides and songs featured on soundtracks) and the ‘Heroes’ E.P., a compilation exclusive to the set celebrating the 40th anniversary of the song, which rounds up the German and French album and single versions of the track in one place for the first time.

Exclusive to each of the boxed sets is Lodger (Tony Visconti 2017 Mix). The remix was started with David’s blessing before his passing in January last year. Tony Visconti has revisited the original multi-tracks at Human Studios and remixed the album with the benefit of modern technology to better highlight the album’s nuances. Always a personal favourite of David’s, this version of the album will also feature newly ‘remixed’ artwork featuring unseen images from the original cover photographic session.

Also exclusive to each box is Re:Call 3, a new compilation featuring remastered contemporary single versions, non-album singles and b-sides, and songs featured on soundtracks. The cover features a photo by Christian Simonpietri taken at Hansa Studios in Berlin during the ‘Heroes’ sessions in 1977. The Baal E.P. in its entirety is making its CD debut while “Beauty And The Beast” (extended version) and “Breaking Glass” (Australian single version) are making their debuts on CD and digitally.

The physical boxed 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 Anton Corbijn, Helmut Newton, Andrew Kent, Steve Schapiro, Duffy and many others as well as historical press reviews and technical notes about the albums from producer Tony Visconti.

The CD boxed 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 boxed set has the same content as the CD set and is pressed on audiophile quality 180g vinyl.

*A New Career In A New Town (1977-1982) will also be made available in High Definition audio digital formats (192kHZ/24bit and 96kHZ/24bit). Content varies from other formats due to the resolution of the available original source material.
