David Bowie / Ziggy Stardust album in Dolby Atmos

First Atmos Mix available on blu-ray audio

Quick pre-order via the SDE shop

David Bowie’s 1972 album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars has been mixed in Dolby Atmos and will be released physically, on a standalone blu-ray audio in September.

David’s breakthough album features numerous classic songs such as ‘Starman’, ‘Moonage Daydream’, ‘Ziggy Stardust’, ‘Five Years’ and ‘Suffragette City’, was Bowie’s first hit album, reaching number five in the UK chart in 1972, while ‘Starman’ was a top 10 single.

This is the first Dolby Atmos Mix of a Bowie studio album. Since the start of the ‘eras’ campaign with Five Years box set in 2015, Parlophone have not released any of David’s albums in surround sound. It has actually been 14 years since the last release, which was Station to Station, within the big box set. Before that, there was a 5.1 mix of Young Americans in 2007 (as part of a now out-of-print CD+DVD set) and prior to that was a Ziggy Stardust SACD in 2003.

The blu-ray contains the first ever Atmos Mix of a Bowie studio album

The blu-ray will feature the following audio streams:

  • 2024 Dolby Atmos Mix
  • 2024 Stereo MIx (96/24)
  • Original 1972 Stereo Mix – 2012 Remaster (192/24)
  • Original 1972 Stereo Mix – 2012 Remaster (48/24)

The Atmos mix was created by Emre Ramazanoglu with original producer Ken Scott at RAK Studios, London. This, along with a new 2024 stereo mix, are unique to this physical product – neither are included on the blu-ray in the forthcoming Rock ‘n’ Roll Star! box set. Parlophone have chosen not to include Ken Scott’s 2003 5.1 mix on this Atmos blu-ray, which is a bit of a shame.

If you don’t have an Atmos-compatible amp/receiver but do have a 5.1 set-up, it ‘down mixes’ to what is a new 5.1 mix on your system.

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars blu-ray audio will be issued on 6 September 2024, via Parlophone. Secure your copy via the SDE shop, the home of blu-ray audio! Pre-order using this link or the button below.
