‘Lets Dance’ Demo Released To Mark David Bowie’s 71st Birthday


An early demo of ‘Let’s Dance’ has been released to celebrate what would have been David Bowie’s 71st birthday.

The track was recorded in 1982, a year prior to the album of the same name’s release, at Bowie’s Switzerland home with Chic’s Nile Rodgers.

As the NME reports: “After joining forces with bassist Erdal Kizilcay and engineer David Richards, they then headed into Montreux’s Mountain Studios to record an early stripped-back demo of the track.”

“Now, the demo has been released for the first time in 35 years after it was mixed by Rodgers – and it’s a far cry from the fully rounded sound that would eventually end up on Bowie’s seminal 1983 album.”
