The content is the latest David Bowie music to be mixed in 360 Reality Audio, following Space Oddity, which is currently available on 360 Reality Audio-supported streaming platforms.

These albums are being released in conjunction with the ongoing Bowie 75 – an extended celebration of David Bowie’s 75th birthday featuring two physical pop up locations in NYC and London equipped with 360 Reality Audio listening experiences at each location. Longtime Bowie producer Tony Visconti has crafted 360 Reality Audio mixes of the albums and they will be available for streaming in 360 Reality Audio beginning January 21, 2022 on Amazon Music Unlimited, Deezer, and TIDAL.
