You can buy God, It's Monday...
As if you didn't already know, David Bowie's brilliant 26th studio album, Reality, is available from today. As we mentioned in one of our news pieces about the album, (09/02/03 NEWS: CD FORMATS, KINKS COVER, HMV DOWNLOAD AND NKS COMP) it comes in two main formats, a straight CD and a limited edition 2CD digi-pack. See aforementioned story for bonus CD tracks.
The album is released tomorrow in the US, but at least they have a special screening of the Riverside Reality show tonight, to take their minds off the delay. We did post the tracklisting a couple of months ago, (07/08/03 NEWS: BOWIE'S NEW ALBUM IS NOW A REALITY) but here it is again for those of you that don't already know the running order by heart:
01 New Killer Star
02 Pablo Picasso
03 Never Get Old
04 The Loneliest Guy
05 Looking for Water
06 She'll Drive the Big Car
08 Fall Dog Bombs The Moon
09 Try Some, Buy Some
11 Bring Me The Disco King
With all of the excitement surrounding today's news (New album, new-look BowieNet, tour dates and pre-sale) you could be forgiven for forgetting that today also sees the reissue of three of the more recent Bowie albums on Sony. (04/25/03 NEWS: SONY REISSUES: THE FACTS)
1.Outside, Earthling and 'hours...' are all back on the shelves at a special price, and 'hours...' has the fully-restored, and to my mind, far better Rex Ray original sleeve that never made it to the commercial release of 'hours...'.
We will be running a competition for some Reality related goodies shortly, not to mention a contest to win five sets of these reissues later in the week.
