A new version of the music video for ‘Heroes’ by David Bowie has been revealed to mark the 42nd anniversary since the song was released. Released on September 23, 1977, the single was the title track from Bowie’s twelfth studio album, recorded with producers Brian Eno and Tony Visconti. The music video brings together a collection of footage from the original shoot, as edited by Nachos Video, being officially approved by David Bowie’s Facebook page.
The description for the music video reads as follows, “This video is a newly-edited, previously unreleased take from the Stanley Dorfman / Nicholas Ferguson-directed official ‘Heroes’ promo video outtakes reel. It is synced to the 2017 remastered version of ‘Heroes’, edited back into the 1977 7” single format.”
Nacho continued, “In considering the many possible ways of making my own re-cut version of the ‘Heroes’ promo video, I eventually decided on trying to salvage the wonderful Complete Take 1,”
Last month, the first photo of Johnny Flynn in the upcoming biopic Stardust was released. The film was announced earlier in the year, focusing on the story of Bowie heading to America in 1971, which is when it is believed Ziggy Stardust was created. The shot of the actor depicts Flynn smoking a cigar sat in a diner. The film’s production was not received well by the family of Bowie. His son Duncan Jones wrote on Twitter, “Pretty certain nobody has been granted music rights for ANY biopic… I would know,”
He said further, “I’m not saying this movie is not happening. I honestly wouldn’t know. I’m saying that as it stands, this movie won’t have any of dads music in it, & I can’t imagine that changing.”
