David Bowie’s ‘Hunky Dory’ Album Is Next In Line Of 50th Anniversary Reissues

The release date is set for January 2022

David Bowie’s seminal fourth album Hunky Dory is next in line for a deluxe 50th-anniversary reissue. The original album was produced by Ken Scott and Bowie. The classic 1971 record was released 50 years ago on December 17, and features the singles “Life On Mars?,” “Oh! You Pretty Things,” and “Changes.”

As online music daily NME reports, to mark the half-century milestone, a new take on the latter track has been shared ahead of a special vinyl picture disc reissue of Hunky Dory. The new physical edition will arrive via Parlophone on January 7, 2022 – the day before what would have been Bowie’s 75th birthday (January 8).

“The new version of ‘Changes’ is a fresh look at David’s classic,” explained Ken Scott in a statement.

“When listening to the original multi-track I discovered a few things that I had eliminated from the original mix and also a completely different sax solo at the end. It was those things that led me to try a new mix, trying for a slightly harder, more contemporary edge to it.”

The forthcoming reissue, the picture disc vinyl will boast the 2015 vinyl remaster of Hunky Dory and includes a poster featuring the annotated back cover art of the album.
