Giant David Bowie box set ‘A New Career in a New Town’ to feature new mix of ‘Lodger’

The third in Parlophone’s series of career-spanning David Bowie box sets will be released in September as an 11 CD, 13 LP or digital download edition that features everything Bowie released between 1977 and 1982, including rarities and a new mix of Lodger by producer Tony Visconti.

The set, titled A New Career in a New Town (1977-1982), follows the previously released Five Years (1969-1973) and Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976) box sets, and will be released on Sept. 29 in a variety of physical and digital formats (see full details, including tracklists, below).

The new box set covers Bowie’s so-called “Berlin Trilogy” through Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), and includes a new compilation called Re:Call 3 that includes remastered single versions, non-album singles and B-sides, and songs featured on soundtracks.

New to the set is a remix of 1979’s Lodger by Visconti that was “started with David’s blessing before his passing” last year, according to the label:

“Tony Visconti has revisited the original multi-tracks at Human Studios and remixed the album with the benefit of modern technology to better highlight the album’s nuances. Always a personal favorite of David’s, this version of the album will also feature newly ‘remixed’ artwork featuring unseen images from the original cover photographic session from the archive of the Estate of photographer Duffy, working closely with his son Chris.”

The box set will include a book (128 pages in the CD set, 84 pages in the vinyl set) that features rare and previously unseen photos. The CD set will include “mini-vinyl” versions of the original album sleeves, while the vinyl box set will be pressed on audiophile 180-gram vinyl.

    Too bad the bonus tracks from the ’91 reissues of Low, “Heroes”, and Lodger aren’t included

     
    • Chucky

      Generally speaking these boxes have only contained previously released material (although a few exceptions have occurred). None of the Ryko bonus tracks have been part of these boxes.
