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.”
