An EP of unreleased and rare tracks from David Bowie, entitled ‘David Bowie Is It Any Wonder?’ and the ‘ChangesNowBowie’ sessions are on the way, as confirmed by Parlophone Records. Firstly, is the EP. It features an acoustic version of ‘The Man Who Sold The World’, released today to mark what would have been Bowie’s 73rd birthday, (January 8).
Furthermore, the song was written and recorded five years to the day.
The acoustic version for ‘The Man Who Sold The World’ will feature on both the EP and the ‘ChangesNowBowie’ sessions. You can hear it through Spotify below:
From January 17, the remaining five songs from the ‘David Bowie Is It Any Wonder?’ EP, (the tracklist unconfirmed), will be released weekly.

The music will be performed by DAVID LIVE, the UK based five-piece tribute group of Bowie.
