David+Bowie Who Can I Be Now 1976-1976Our Starman will keep burning brightly with a new CD/vinyl LP boxed set, which features all of the material officially released by David Bowie during what’s been called the “American” phase of his career.

David Bowie Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976) will be released, in association with Parlophone Records, on September 23, 2016 as the second in a series of boxed sets spanning his career from 1969. The followup to the award-winning, critically acclaimed David Bowie Five Years 1969-1973 will also contain the previously unreleased album from 1974 called The Gouster.

The collection includes such studio favorites as “Young Americans,” “Diamond Dogs,” “Rebel Rebel,” “Fame.” (See track listing below.)

The 12-CD box, 13-LP vinyl set, and digital download, whose namesake is a track originally recorded in 1974, includes Diamond Dogs, David Live (in original and 2005 mixes), Young Americans and Station to Station (in original and 2010 mixes), as well as The Gouster, Live Nassau Coliseum ’76 and a new compilation entitled Re:Call 2, a collection of single versions and non-album B-sides. 
The vinyl boxed set has the same content as the CD set and is pressed on audiophile-quality 180 gram vinyl. The sets’ accompanying book, 128 pages in the CD box and 84 in the vinyl set, features rarely seen and previously unpublished photos.
”Rock ‘n’ Roll With Me” from Re:Call 2 will also be offered as a bonus track with all digital pre-orders.

Previously unreleased as a complete album, The Gouster, which is exclusive to the boxed set, was recorded at Sigma Sound in Philadelphia in 1974, and produced by Tony Visconti. The Gouster contains three previously unreleased mixes: “Right,” “Can You Hear Me” and “Somebody Up There Likes Me.”
 The album was mixed and mastered before Bowie came to New York and worked with John Lennon and Harry Maslin on what would become the Young Americans album.

Re:Call 2 features the original single mix of “Rebel Rebel,” which has only been featured on a 40th anniversary picture disc in 2014 since its original release on a single in 1974, and a previously-unreleased-on-CD Australian single edit of “Diamond Dogs,” as well as the single edit of the live version of “Rock ‘n’ Roll With Me,” which was issued to radio stations in the U.S. to help promote the David Live album. Re:Call 2 also features new artwork with 1975 in-studio images from the Station to Station recording sessions by Bowie’s friend and backing vocalist Geoff MacCormack, aka Warren Peace.

Bowie’s longtime producer and friend, Visconti, has overseen the mastering from all the original tapes for this 2016 release along with a photo sleeve, which falls in line with Bowie’s original concept for the album. Also exclusive to the CD, vinyl, standard digital and MFiT boxed sets will be the remastered David Live (Original Mix) and the 2010 Harry Maslin mix of Station to Station (previously only available on an audio-only DVD.)
