David Bowie‘s “Sound And Vision” will be released as a 7″ picture disc to mark the 40th-anniversary of the single’s original release.

It will be released on February 10 2017; the original single was released on February 11, 1977.

The A-side features a brand new remaster of the track and the flip side sees the first physical release of the 2013 remix of the song. The stripped back remix by Sonjay Prabhakar was originally done for a Sony Experia advert and utilises the original lead vocals and Mary Hopkin’s backing vocal with a new piano part.


The track listing is:

A-Side Sound and Vision (2016 remaster)
Produced David Bowie & Tony Visconti

B-Side Sound and Vision (Sony Experia mix)
Produced David Bowie & Tony Visconti
Remixed by Sonjay Prabhakar

The images used on the A and B sides of the picture disc are by David James and were taken during the filming of The Man Who Fell To Earth.

Meanwhile, a new documentary – David Bowie: The Last Five Years – will air on Saturday, January 7 on BBC Two between 9.00pm-10.30pm.
