Five of David Bowie‘s afterwards albums will be produced on select songs streaming services on Jan. 21, remixed in Sony’s 360 Truth Audio structure. 

The documents — Heathen, Fact, A Reality Tour (Reside), The Future Working day and Blackstar — have all been helmed by long-time producer Tony Visconti, and will be unveiled on Amazon Audio Unrestricted, Deezer and Tidal.

Bowie would have turned 75 on Jan. 8, and to celebrate, the producer spoke at the Bowie75 pop-up in the Manhattan suburb of SoHo previous night time. Visconti labored on Bowie’s major albums and developed hits these as Ashes to Ashes, Space Oddity and Fame. 

Visconti suggests that the pop star, who died in 2016, would have “absolutely cherished” the 360 Reality Audio structure “due to the fact it can be spatial.” He claimed the new variations of Truth and Heathen are trustworthy to the original 5.1 mixes, which had been created although Bowie was however alive. Even so, he explained that the variation of Bowie’s closing album saw the most significant variations.

“If you listen to Blackstar in 360 it sounds radically diverse from the stereo model mainly because we will not have to cram everything in the entrance — it truly is a incredibly dense album,” he stated.

“The 1 factor pop and rock have about classical and jazz is that we can do anything: If we want to put a string portion behind our heads we can do it,” Visconti said.
