CHANGESNOWBOWIE is a nine track album, recorded for radio and broadcast by the BBC on Bowie’s 50th birthday on January 8, 1997. The broadcast featured an interview with Bowie by Mary Anne Hobbs interspersed with specially recorded birthday messages and questions from the likes of Scott Walker, Damon Albarn, Bono, Robert Smith and many more. This mostly acoustic session was a stripped back affair featuring some of Bowie’s favorites of his own compositions and was produced by Bowie himself, Reeves Gabrels and Mark Plati.

CHANGESNOWBOWIE was recorded and mixed at Looking Glass Studios in New York in November 1996. Gail Ann Dorsey (bass, vocals), Gabrels (guitars, vocals) and Plati (keyboards and programming) accompanied Bowie on the recording.
CHANGESNOWBOWIE will be released in limited quantities on LP and CD for Record Store Day on June 20. The cover art for the album features a stunning black and white portrait of Bowie by renowned photographer Albert Watson, taken in New York in 1996.
