ParlophoneA unique live-streamed event on September 26 will help launch the release of the new David Bowie boxed set, DAVID BOWIE A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN (1977 – 1982).

The set is due September 29 and three days prior, a special celebration takes place at legendary Hansa Studios in Berlin, Germany, and will be live-streamed at 2 p.m. ET via Bowie’s Facebook page.

The live event features a question and answer sessions with guests including longtime Bowie guitarist Carlos Alomar and Edu Meyer, former sound engineer at Hansa Studios. That’s where Bowie recorded parts of his Low album as well as Heroes, two-thirds of his so-called “Berlin Trilogy.” Bowie’s Facebook page will also be offering previously unheard audio streams that day.

A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN will be available as an eleven-CD box or 13-disc vinyl box, as well as in high-definition digital download formats.

The set includes Low, Heroes and a new version of Lodger, the third piece of the Berlin Trilogy — remixed by Bowie’s longtime producer, Tony Visconti — as well as the Scary Monsters album. There are also two versions of the 1978 live album Stage, featuring two previously unreleased tracks; and Re:Call 3, a compilation featuring single versions, non-album singles, B-sides and soundtrack selections.

The box is rounded out with the exclusive 40th anniversary Heroes EP, which includes with the single, German and French versions of the seminal Bowie track.

The boxed sets also have an accompanying book — 128 pages in the CD box and 84 in the vinyl set — with rare and previously unpublished photos by Anton Corbijn, Helmut Newton and others, plus press reviews and Visconti’s technical notes.
