David Bowie to reissue 'Life On Mars?' 40th anniversary picture disc

Even though the artwork for his new album suggests an indifference to the past, a recent series of re-releases from David Bowie as well as the David Bowie Is exhibition at the V&A seems to show otherwise.

Bowie, who released new record The Next Day earlier this year to much acclaim, will reissue his 1973 single ‘Life On Mars?’ this June as a limited-edition 7″ picture disc.

Coming out on 24 June via Parlophone, the offering celebrates its 40th anniversary and follows on from a series of Record Store Day releases from the ever-morphing singer.

Its tracklist and details are as below:

A/ Life On Mars? (2003 Ken Scott mix)
Produced by Ken Scott (assisted by the actor)
Arranged by Mick Ronson

AA/ Life On Mars? (Live)
Recorded live by Mike Moran at the Music Hall, Boston, October 1st, 1972
