“One damn song that can make me, break down and cry...”
David Bowie’s Young Americans 45 was released in the UK 40 years ago yesterday.
The release signalled yet another change in direction for Bowie and acted as a taster of what was to come with the album of the same name.
The release was a worldwide hit for Bowie, giving him a Top 20 hit in the UK, a Top 30 in the USA and a #1 hit in New Zealand!
In the regular soundtrack of my life section in today’s Observer, Tracey Emin talks to Killian Fox about the impact the record had on her and on meeting David Bowie over twenty years later.
