To celebrate what would be Bowie's 74th birthday, two previously unreleased covers of John Lennon and Bob Dylan songs will be made available on a very limited number of 7" vinyl.

Bowie recorded his cover of Lennon's "Mother" in 1997 and '98 between Bermuda and Sound On Sound Studios in New York. It was produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti and was intended for a Lennon tribute that never ended up happening.

His version of Dylan's "Tryin' To Get To Heaven" was captured at Looking Glass in New York City in 1998.

The 7" vinyl single is limited to 8147 numbered copies, 1000 of which are cream coloured vinyl, and the remainder on black vinyl.

David Bowie's "Mother / Tryin' To Get To Heaven" limited 7" vinyl will be released on 8 January 2021 via Parlophone/ISO Records.
