David Bowie’s The Width of a Circle, a collection of 1970 BBC sessions, non-LP singles and alternate versions, will be out on 28th May.
The tracks will be part of a two-CD set, including footage from a 14-song session Bowie recorded with disc jockey John Peel on 5th February 1970. The compilation also includes the late singer’s five-song score for BBC drama Pierrot in Turquoise/The Looking Glass Murders, as well as previously unreleased recordings of Bowie’s March 1970 appearance on The Andy Ferris Show.
To go with the 50th-anniverary release of The Man Who Sold the World (AKA. Metrobolist for the 2020 reissue), The Width of a Circle also compiles several 2020 mixes of singles by producer Tony Visconti, including ‘London Bye, Ta-Ta’ and ‘All the Madmen’.
The 21-track collection follows the six-part series of Nineties concerts performed by the singer, titled Brilliant Live Adventures. The Width of a Circle will be out alongside a picture disc version of The Man Who Sold the World.
