Ground Control to Major Tom: Pünktlich zum 40sten Jahrestag der Mondlandung wird David Bowies berühmtes „Space Oddity“ neu aufgelegt – inklusive der einzelnen Spuren, ready for Remix. Und ein Remix-Contest dürfte auch noch folgen.
40 years ago to the day that Neil Armstrong stepped on to the moon, EMI will create a unique opportunity for David Bowie fans: the chance to download and mix the original multi-tracks of Space Oddity which also celebrates the 40th anniversary of its original release on July 11th.
Partly inspired after seeing Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, which premièred in London in May 1968, Space Oddity was originally written later that year with the first known recorded version dating from February 1969, several months before its eventual release on July 11th 1969 and some time before the Apollo 11 moon landings.
