Bowie and Tony Visconti have rekindled their working relationship after a hiatus of over 15 years. They have just completed work on two tracks, each for separate projects. We can reveal that one of the songs is a cover of John Lennon's 'Mother'. This is Bowie's contribution to the John Lennon Tribute album. The basic track was cut in Bermuda with island born Andy Newmark on drums and Reevz Gabrels on guitar. Several instruments were re-recorded and the mix completed in New York. Visconti also contributes some nifty back-up vocals. This will also be the first time that Newmark has worked with Bowie since recording the 'Young Americans' album in 1974. The Lennon project is slated for release on Capitol Records in late 1999. Details on the second song are due anytime now.
