David Bowie is set to premiere three new tracks and new music video ahead of tomorrow’s Mercury Music Prize ceremony.
Three of the five bonus tracks from the forthcoming deluxe edition of David Bowie’s The Next Day will receive their world premieres on three different UK radio stations ahead of this year’s Mercury Music Prize ceremony.
Along with Arctic Monkey’s AM, The Next Day is the bookies’ joint favourite to win the annual music award which will be unveiled tomorrow evening (Wednesday, October 30). Atomica will receive its first play on Lauren Laverne’s show on BBC 6 Music at 10:50am, while Born In A UFO is set to debut on Ken Bruce’s show on BBC Radio 2 at 11.30am, and Geoff Lloyd will play Like A Rocket Man on Absolute Radio at 6.45pm.
Bowie is also set to unveil a music video for LCD Soundsytem producer James Murphy’s 10-minute remix of Love Is Lost, which is also taken from the album, tomorrow, too.
The repackaged album, dubbed The Next Day Extra, will be released in the UK next Monday (November 4).
