David Bowie is reissuing the title track of his 1983 album Let’s Dance as a single on July 16.

 

It will be available on yellow vinyl 7”, backed by a live version of the song recorded in Vancouver in September 1983. Originally recorded as part of Bowie’s Serious Moonlight concert film, the live version hasn’t previously been available on vinyl.

 

Limited to 550 copies, the release coincides with Bowie’s memorabilia exhibition David Bowie Is reaching Australia. It will be on display at Melbourne’s Australian Centre For Moving Image from July 16.

 

The same day will also see 500 copies of Bowie’s 2008 compilation iSelect available on vinyl at the display. The compilation, of Bowie’s own favourite songs from his career, sold out instantly when it was previously available at the Paris display of David Bowie Is.

 

Copies of both the single and compilation will be available to win on Bowie’s official Facebook page.

 

Meanwhile, work continues on Lazarus – the musical version of Bowie’s 1976 film The Man Who Fell To Earth, which will feature new Bowie songs.
