The David Bowie Estate announced today that a series of releases from David Bowie’s back catalogue have been remixed and reimagined in 360 Reality Audio–a new music experience driven by Sony’s spatial sound– and will be released on 360 Reality Audio-supported streaming platforms The remixed LPs include Bowie’s LP Space Oddity, which is already out with 360 Reality Audio.

The audio mixes to be released include “Heathen”, “Reality”, “A Reality Tour (Live)”, “The Next Day”, and  ★ (pronounced “Blackstar”) along with “Space Oddity”. The albums were all mixed by long time Bowie producer Tony Visconti. They will be available to stream in 360 Reality Audio starting January 21st on Amazon Music Unlimited, Deezer and TIDAL.

The announcement comes in conjunction with Bowie 75, the extended celebration of the late artist’s 75 birthday on January 8th, 2022, which features two pop-up locations in London and New York fully equipped with 360 Reality Audio listening experiences, which makes it possible to listen to the songs “in a lifelike music experience” according to a press release.

Additionally, the Bowie Estate and Sony are making four archival live performance recordings that have also been mixed in 360 Reality Audio. The four songs come from Bowie’s “A Reality Tour” and feature live video – they’ll be livestreamed today, January 6th via David Bowie’s Youtube channel.

“The fan response to Bowie 75 has been nothing short of amazing,” said Lawrence Peryer, Producer of Bowie 75. “David was always on the cutting edge of the latest developments in technology, so it was a natural fit to collaborate with Sony’s 360 Reality Audio team to bring fans a whole new way to experience his music. The reimagining of David’s music, which can be experienced at the pop-ups or via streaming, has given his lifelong fans and new listeners alike a reason to celebrate.”

The Bowie 75 pop-up locations are at 150 Wooster Street, N.Y., just a few steps away from Bowie’s long time downtown New York City neighbourhood, and 14 Heddon Street, the London location where the cover of “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars” were shot.
