New David Bowie box set, A New Career in a New Town (1977-1982), due out in September

The 11-CD, 13-LP set centers on Bowie's Berlin Trilogy


    The third installment in a series of career-spanning David Bowie box sets has been announced. Due for release on September 29th, David Bowie A New Career in a New Town (1977-1982) is an 11-CD, 13-LP set centered around his famed “Berlin Trilogy.” It follows two previous archival box sets, David Bowie Five Years (1969-1973) and David Bowie Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976), released in 2015 and 2016, respectively.

    A New Career in a New Town includes the three albums making up the “Berlin Trilogy” — 1977’s Low, 1977’s “Heroes”, and 1979’s Lodger. In particular, Lodger have been newly mixed by Bowie’s longtime producer Tony Visconti, done with the blessing of Bowie prior to his death in January 2016.

    The set also includes a new mix of the 1978 live album Stage featuring two unreleased tracks; the “Heroes” EP, a compilation collecting the German and French album and single versions of the track in one place for the first time; and Re:Call 3, a new compilation featuring remastered contemporary single versions, non-album singles and b-sides, and songs featured on soundtracks.
