Bowie now has three releases planned for Record Store Day. Earlier this month he announced a picture disc of his 1973 single, ‘Drive-In Saturday,’ as well as a four-song EP of the two singles he released in 1965, with one side covering the Manish Boys and the other as Davy Jones and the Lower Third.
‘The Next Day,’ Bowie’s first album since 2003′s ‘Reality,’ will be available March 12 in North America, and March 11 nearly everywhere else. It was produced by longtime collaborator Tony Visconti.
Record Store Day was created in 2007 as a way of celebrating independent record stores in the current economic climate. Many artists contribute limited edition releases, most of which are on vinyl, for the occasion. Visit Record Store Day’s website to find out which stores near you are participating.
