David Bowie "Mother" / "Tryin' To Get To Heaven"

David Bowie "Mother" / "Tryin' To Get To Heaven"



To celebrate what would have been the 74th birthday of David Bowie on the 8th January, two previously unreleased cover versions John Lennon’s MOTHER and Bob Dylan’s TRYIN’ TO GET TO HEAVEN will be released as a very special limited edition 7” single. 

The 7” single is limited to 8147 numbered copies, 1000 of which of the 7”s will be on cream coloured vinyl available only from the official David Bowie store and Warner Music’s D2C stores.


Originally recorded by Lennon for his 1970 album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, Bowie's version of MOTHER was produced by Tony Visconti in 1998 for a Lennon tribute that never came to fruition. Bob Dylan’s original TRYIN’ TO GET TO HEAVEN was released on his 1997 Album of the Year GRAMMY winning Time Out Of Mind. David’s version was recorded in February 1998 during the mixing sessions for the live album.
