A new collection of unreleased David Bowie demos will be releasing later this year. Titled THE ‘MERCURY’ DEMOS, the new album includes 10 one-take recordings from 1969 that the iconic artist made alongside John “Hutch” Hutchinson, who helped in providing guitars and vocals to the various tracks. The collection includes an early version of “Space Oddity” (released previously), as well as previously unreleased recordings. The new package set will come in a replica of the original tape box, which is viewable via the late David Bowie’s Instagram.
The box will be released via Parlophone, who currently controls and distributes Bowie’s material from 1969-2000, and has previously released a similar box set entitled Spying Through a Keyhole (Demos and Unreleased Songs). The new 7” vinyl box set will be released on June 28.
In case you missed it, David Bowie’s estate linked with Vans for a capsule collection.
