Article By: Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker ‡ Edited By: Leanne Ridgeway

A new box set covering one of DAVID BOWIE‘s most productive, commercially successful periods is on the way.

On October 12th, Parlophone Records will release ‘Loving The Alien (1983-1988)‘, the fourth in a series of collections centered on music from The Thin White Duke. The 11xCD or 15xLP box includes Bowie’s Eighties material, including the remastered studio albums ‘Let’s Dance’, ‘Tonight’, ‘Never Let Me Down’, and his soundtrack to the film ‘Labyrinth’.

Also included is the previously unreleased live “Serious Moonlight” recording from 1983, the ‘Glass Spider’ live album from 1987, and the ‘Dance’ EP which features 12-inch remixes of singles from ‘Let’s Dance’, ‘Never Let Me Down’, and ‘Tonight’. Additionally, the ‘Re:Call 4′ rarities set (non-album singles, such as “This Is Not America” and “Dancing In the Street“), as well as several alternate version and B-side tracks, have been amassed here.

Another bonus is a 2018 version of ‘Never Let Me Down’, produced by Mario McNulty, with string arrangements by Nico Muhly, and a guest appearance from Laurie Anderson on “Shining Star (Makin’ My Love)“, too.

The tracklist for this collection is massive in length but can be viewed in full HERE.

Previously released Box Sets – DAVID BOWIEFive Years (1969 – 1973)‘, DAVID BOWIEWho Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976)‘, and DAVID BOWIEA New Career In A New Town (1977 – 1982)‘ – are out now and available for purchase.
