David Bowie is giving another one of his singles the anniversary treatment.
The 40th Anniversary of his single “Diamond Dogs” will be celebrated with the release of a new 7” picture disc. Per Bowie’s official website, the picture disc, a double A side including the original studio version and a live cut from David Live, is slated for a June 17th release.
This is Bowie’s tenth 40th anniversary single release, his most recent being “Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide” and “1984”, which were released as a part of this year’s Record Store Day celebration on April 19th.
While Bowie’s music stands on its own, the accompanying image on the picture disc is just a reminder of how freaking cool he looked. Sure, at the end of the day, it’s about the music, but man, I just can’t get over those boots.
