Parlophone/RhinoDavid Bowie‘s has announced details about the next installment of his ongoing 40th anniversary singles campaign: a seven-inch vinyl picture disc featuring a 2007 single mix of the hit title track from 1975’s Young Americans, and an alternate version of the 1974 song “It’s Gonna Be Me,” which was an outtake from that same album. The limited-edition single will be released on February 24, 2015.

Both songs on the disc were produced and mixed by longtime Bowie collaborator Tony Visconti, and both will be getting their debut vinyl release on the picture disc. The version of “It’s Gonna Be Me” included on the single features strings, and was recorded during the same 1974 sessions at Philadelphia’s Sigma Sound studios that yielded most of Young Americans. The track originally was released as part of the 2007 collector’s edition of the album.

The photo on the “Young Americans” side of the disc is a black-and-white image of Bowie snapped by famous Hollywood photographer Tom Kelley, while the pic on the other side is a color shot taken in 1974 by Steve Schapiro.

The original “Young Americans” single peaked at #28 on the Billboard Hot 100.
