THE WIDTH OF A CIRCLE - OUT THIS MONTH
1st May 2021

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: (14/4/21)

DAVID BOWIE - THE WIDTH OF A CIRCLE

COMPANION PIECE TO METROBOLIST CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD

TWO CD SET FEATURING 21 UNRELEASED TRACKS
FOUR TRACK 10" SINGLE / HIGH RESOLUTION (96/24) DIGITAL E.P. FEATURING 4 NON-ALBUM SINGLES NEWLY REMIXED BY TONY VISCONTI

THE MAN WHO SOLD THE WORLD ALBUM PICTURE DISC

RELEASED 28th MAY ON PARLOPHONE


The Width Of A Circle David Bowie Last month saw the 50th anniversary of the original UK release of The Man Who Sold The World, David Bowie's landmark entry into the 1970s. The album began the collaboration with guitarist Mick Ronson that would continue with such Bowie classics as Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane.

The 2020 re-release of The Man Who Sold The World restored the album's intended title Metrobolist, while featuring a new mix by original producer Tony Visconti. Taking its name from the album's opening track, which was named after a painting by Bowie's friend George Underwood, the new two-CD set The Width Of A Circle acts as a complementary piece to that album. Its 21 tracks feature non-album singles, a BBC In Concert session, music for a TV play and further Visconti remixes wrapping up David's recordings from 1970 and revealing the first sonic steps toward Hunky Dory.

Also released on 28th May is a picture disc version of The Man Who Sold The World album, featuring the striking black and white imagery of the 1972 reissue.
