Parlophone RecordsThe latest installment of David Bowie‘s series of limited-edition 40th anniversary vinyl picture discs will feature two versions of one of the late rock legend’s most enduring anthems, “Heroes.”

The seven-inch disc, which will be issued on September 22, will feature a 2017 remastered version of the original single version of “Heroes” on its A side. The flip side is a previously unreleased recording of Bowie performing the tune in 1977, on late T. Rex frontman Marc Bolan‘s U.K. TV show Marc.

The photo featured on the A side is a picture of Bowie taken in Japan 1977 by photographer Sukita; the flip side has a still pic of David from his appearance on the Marc show.

“Heroes” was co-written by Bowie and Brian Eno, and was released as a single in the U.K. on September 23, 1977. The song also appears on David’s album of the same name, which was issued in October of ’77.

Among the many artists who have covered “Heroes” over the years are Prince, Peter Gabriel, Blondie, Oasis, Depeche Mode and The Wallflowers.
