"His new single "Starman" is released on April 28th"
Ad published in UK music weeklies on April 22nd, 1972.
There's a starman waiting in the sky*
I've received a few e-mails from concerned BowieNetters reminding me of the thirty year anniversary of the release of the 'Starman' single. Don't panic kids...even though the release date is recorded as April 14th 1972 in most listings, the single was in fact put back a couple of weeks to April 28th.
"Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright!"
*For at least another two weeks.
