David Bowie to Release ‘No Plan’ EP on CD and Vinyl
Six weeks after receiving a digital release, David Bowie's No Plan EP will become available as a physical product. Today, his label announced plans to put it out in CD on Feb. 24, with two vinyl versions arriving shortly thereafter.
The news comes via Bowie's website, and notes that first vinyl package is in standard black and will be out on April 21. Then, on May 26, they will release a limited-editing white vinyl with a die-cut package and a 12x12 lithograph of the artwork, which was designed by Jonathan Barnbrook. All white vinyl sets will be made-to-order and randomly numbered. Both editions are 180-gram 12" vinyl with the music on one side and what they're calling a "special laser etching" on the other.
No Plan contains Blackstar's "Lazarus" along with three songs, "Killing a Little Time," When I Met You" and the title track, that didn't make the record's final cut. In addition to the digital EP, the songs were first released back in October 2016 on the original cast recording for Lazarus, the off-Broadway musical that featured many Bowie compositions. You can pre-order the CD and/or vinyl of No Plan via this link.
Released on his 69th birthday and only two days before his death last year, Blackstar is up for three Grammy Awards. The full record was nominated in the Best Alternative Music Album category, while the title track received nods for Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song. The Grammys will be held this Sunday, Feb. 12, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
