October sees the release of a new 7-inch picture disc commemorating the 40th anniversary of David Bowie’s single “Sorrow” — a cover on Pinups of a 1965 song by The McCoys that became a hit when The Merseys recorded it the following year — and Warner Music Group has hooked us up with copies to give away to 5 lucky Slicing Up Eyeballs readers.
The 7-inch is due out Oct. 15 and can be pre-ordered now via Amazon.com and also will be available at your local independent record shop. The single is backed by a rare live version of the song recorded Sept. 12, 1983, at the Pacific National Coliseum in Vancouver during Bowie’s Serious Moonlight Tour.
