A 50th Anniversary Vinyl of David Bowie’s ‘Diamond Dogs’ Album is Coming

It will be in the form of a half-speed LP and picture disc

As NME online reports, David Bowie’s 1974 album Diamond Dogs is set to be reissued on vinyl later this year to mark the record’s 50th anniversary.

The last of Bowie’s glam rock albums will be available once again, in a limited edition, half-speed mastered LP, as well as a picture disc LP pressed from the same master. The records will be released on May 24 via Parlophone, on the exact day of the album’s anniversary.

Bowie produced the original album himself and played lead guitar in the absence of Mick Ronson. It came out of a period when Bowie had been attempting to make an adaptation of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four as well as a project based on the writing of William S. Burroughs, but both had fallen through.

It was also announced last month that a new Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie album will be released for this year’s Record Store Day. Waiting In The Sky (Before The Starman Came To Earth) is a collection of recordings from Trident Studios in 1971 of songs that would largely go on to form the legendary 1972 album, and will be available on Record Store Day, which is being held on April 20.
