    Prior to his death, David Bowie prepared a number of posthumous releases for the coming years. Late last week brought word of a new box set, Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976), which includes an unreleased album called The Gouster. Now, full details of the box set’s contents have been announced.

    Available beginning September 23rd through Parlophone, the 12-CD, 13-LP packages boasts Re:Call 2, a new compilation of singles and non-album b-sides, in addition to remastered versions of Diamond Dogs, Young Americans, Station to Station, David Live, and Live Nassau Coliseum ’76.

    Most notably, however, is the presence of The Gouster. Recorded amid his “plastic soul”-era in 1974, Bowie embraced elements of funk, R&B, and soul music while working in the studio. The result was a seven-track effort that began with a re-recorded version of “John, I’m Only Dancing” and also included tracks such as “Young Americans”, “Somebody Up There Likes Me”, and “Can You Hear Me?”. While The Gouster never saw release, several albums tracks were reconfigured and released on 1975’s Young Americans.

    Who Can I Be Now? is rounded out by a hardcover photo book along with new liner notes from some of Bowie’s closest collaborators, specifically producer Tony Visconti (who has overseen remastering the original tapes) and Harry Maslin.
