David Bowie to reissue 40th anniversary edition of Aladdin Sane

David Bowie's Aladdin Sane will be remastered and reissued to mark its 40th anniversary this year.

Bowie's sixth album, Aladdin Sane was originally released in April 1973.

The album was originally co-produced by Bowie and Ken Scott and recorded at Trident Studios in London and RCA Studios in New York. It would be the last album that the line-up of Mick Ronson (guitar, piano, backing vocals), Trevor Bolder (bass) and Mick ‘Woody’ Woodmansey (drums) would appear on and the first to feature pianist Mike Garson.

The reissue is set for release on April 15 and was remastered by Ray Staff at London’s AIR Studios, who cut the original LP during his time at Trident Studios and has remastered Ziggy Stardust's 40th anniversary edition last year.

The tracklisting for the Aladdin Sane 40th Anniversary Edition is as follows:

'Watch That Man'
'Aladdin Sane (1913-1938-197?)'
'Drive-In Saturday'
'Panic In Detroit'
'Cracked Actor'
