David Bowie releasing Rebel Rebel 40th anniversary picture disc

David Bowie will issue “Rebel Rebel” as the next release in the continuing run of limited edition 40th anniversary 7” picture discs.

Due March 10, the A-side features the original single mix of “Rebel Rebel”, which hasn't been available on 7"
since the early 80's and remains unavailable on CD to this day; the AA-side has the US single version, a remixed edit with overdubs and extra backing vocals.

Originally released on February 15th 1974, “Rebel Rebel” was a first taste from the upcoming “Diamond Dogs” LP, though it was considered a bit of a curveball compared to much of the music on that album.

The single reached No. 5 on the UK singles chart and No. 64 on the US Billboard Hot 100, while placing top 10 in several other countries.

Bowie and his latest album, “The Next Day”, have been nominated for three 2014 Grammy Awards and a pair of 2014 BRIT Awards.
