David Bowie to Reissue ‘Changes’ as Limited 7-Inch for Record Store Day
For this year's Record Store Day -- set for April 18 -- iconic rock star David Bowie is planning on releasing his popular single, 'Changes,' as a limited edition white-clear 7-inch that will double as a picture disc. The original track appears on Bowie's 1972 album, 'Hunky Dory.'
It will be backed with 'Kingdom Come,' a song that is taken from his 1980 disc, 'Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps).' There will be two versions of the track: Bowie's interpretation as well as Tom Verlaine's original score. He's also got a bunch of other vinyl releases coming out, including his self-curated career-spanning greatest hits album, 'i Select,' on red vinyl.
Wax aside, the 'David Bowie Is' exhibit -- which has been making its rounds across the globe selling out installations in London and Chicago -- opens at the Philharmonie de Paris around the same time these record releases drop. The exhibit features a 300-object display, including lyrics handwritten by Bowie, original costumes, film, set designs and the musician's very own instruments. Get details on the exhibit here.
