“Way back in West Berlin...”

 

As today is all about the launch of the David Bowie: A New Career In A New Town (1977–1982) box set in Berlin, and while you’re waiting for the action there to start, it seems appropriate to exclusively reveal the October 2017 German Rolling Stone magazine cover, which, as we told you previously, has an exclusive Bowie feature and cover-mounted 7" vinyl single of "Helden"/"Heroes".

 

This is the tracklisting of this future 33 1/3rd collectable.

 

Side 1: "Helden" (’89 remix version)

Side 2: "Heroes" (live version from Stage)

As David Bowie’s legendary album "Heroes" celebrates its 40th anniversary, the new issue of ROLLING STONE Germany contains an exclusive 7inch single: The vinyl features a live version of the immortal hit "Heroes" and the German version of the song.

 

"Helden" was issued on the "Heroes" LP in Germany in 1977.  Tobias Rüther takes a look at this germanised version of the song in his cover story, recalling the difficulties of translation and the pronunciation of the German language for non-speakers of it, even with the help of Antonia Maaß.

 

ROLLING STONE also takes a closer look at Bowie’s life in Berlin in the Seventies: At the time the musician became one of the biggest heroes of the gay movement, Jens Balzer examines the artist’s influence on the LGBT music scene. Bernd Cailloux also describes what Berlin looked and felt like in 1977, he travels to the thriving underground and reflects on the city’s effect on David Bowie – and the singer’s impact on Berlin.

The magazine/vinyl package is available to pre-order now, but it’s only available to addresses in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
