The David Bowie Box Set Is Out Soon And Includes Unreleased Music

David Bowie is one of the most iconic English singers, songwriters, and actors of all time. His death in 2016 saw the departure of one of the most legendary figures in the music industry. As a tribute, a new box set of seven-inch singles, called Spying Through a Keyhole, will be released by Parlophone Records this spring to commemmorate the 50th anniversary of Bowie’s 1969 self-titled album, which was later reissued by a different name, the infamous Space Oddity.

It features nine unreleased David Bowie demos that were recorded during that era, and they were briefly released on streaming platforms last December. Now they will be available in a physical form.

“This is partly due to David’s enthusiastic strumming hitting the red on a couple of the tracks, along with the limitations of the original recording equipment and tape degradation,” a statement on Bowie’s official website declared, regarding that the audio quality of some of the earlier demos are subpar to studio levels. “However, the historical importance of these songs and the fact that the selections are from an archive of tracks cleared for release by Bowie, overrides this shortcoming.”

This box set is the latest posthumous Bowie release.
