David Bowie‘s 1975 single Golden Years will be the next in the seemingly never-ending 40th anniversary seven-inch picture discs.
Golden Years was the lead single from the Station to Station album which followed a few months later in January 1976. Like that original release, this picture disc features the shorter 3.22 single edit of the song. Unlike the ’75 single, which included Young Americans album track Can You Hear Me? on its flipside, Golden Years 2015 puts the French single edit of Station to Station on the B-side of the picture disc. This 3.40 version was included on CD in the 2010 Station to Station box set.
Golden Years was actually reissued only four years ago. It was the last Bowie CD single, when EMI put out remixes of it in 2011.
The new picture disc seven-inch is scheduled for release in November.
