It is with much pleasure that we can exclusively announce a career-spanning collection of Bowie’s music covering fifty years of recorded works from his 1964 debut, Liza Jane, through to a brand new recording made this year.

(Please note, the image illustrating this piece has nothing to do with the artwork for the collection, which will follow in the coming weeks)

Nothing Has Changed (named after a lyric from the Heathen album opener Sunday) compiles tracks from every period of Bowie’s career and features new single; Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime), which was specially recorded for the compilation with long-term collaborator Tony Visconti.

Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime), will be released as a limited edition 10” single and digital download the same day as the album via Parlophone in the UK on Monday, November 17th.

In the US the album will be issued on Tuesday, November 18th, along with the digital download version of the single. The physical single will be released as a Black Friday 2014 exclusive 10” on November 28th. The album and single are issued by Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings in the US.

Both the UK and US versions of the 10” will feature another exclusive 2014 recording on the B-side: ‘Tis A Pity She’s A Whore.

Alongside the brand new A-side track, Nothing Has Changed features the previously unreleased Let Me Sleep Beside You from the Toy album sessions. The download only Your Turn To Drive will also be making its debut on CD for Nothing Has Changed and the 2001 re-recording of the 1971 outtake, Shadow Man, is included too.

Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks for cover artwork of both the album and single and for any regional variations of the release dates we are given.

Sarandon: Bowie a hit in the sack
By Rachel Maresca and Rich Schapiro
NY Daily News, July 27, 2014.

He rocked her world.

Actress Susan Sarandon says she had a secret fling with British musician David Bowie whom she describes as “extraordinary” and “worth idolizing.”

The 67-year-old actress revealed she jumped into bed with Bowie while the pair were co-starring in the 1983 horror film “The Hunger.”

"That was a really interesting period," Sarandon told the Daily Beast.

The brief affair took place after Sarandon divorced her first husband, Chris Sarandon, and before she began dating actor Tim Robbins.

Three decades later, she heaped praise on her ex-rock star beau (inset together).

"He’s worth idolizing. He’s extraordinary," she said.

"Bowie’s just a really interesting person, and so bright. He’s a talent, and a painter, and…he’s great."

Sarandon suggested the affair didn’t last because she didn’t want to have children.

"I wasn’t supposed to have kids, and I’m the oldest of nine and had mothered all of them, so I wasn’t ever in a mode to where I was looking to settle down and raise a family," Sarandon said.

"So that definitely changes the gene pool you’re dipping into."

Sarandon apparently had a change of heart as she got older.

She had her first child, a daughter, named Eva, in 1985 while she was dating Italian filmmaker Franco Amurri.

She went on to marry Robbins and had two more children - Jack Henry and Miles Guthrie. The pair split in 2009 after 23 years together.

Bowie, 67, has been married to supermodel Iman since 1992. The couple, who live primarily in New York, have a daughter.

In her wide-ranging interview, Sarandon admitted the [sic] she’s a fan of marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms.

"I like those drugs in the outdoors," she said, "I’m not a city-tripper."

"When Julien Temple made his film of Absolute Beginners he asked me to take photos of all the cast members and I spent a week on the movie set taking portraits of all the actors. As well as appearing in the film, David Bowie had written the title song, and was going to make a video to promote it. The record ended up at number two on the single charts. The video was shot in a variety of locations around The Embankment of the Thames and although I had many great images from the video, David and I felt that we should shoot a special photo for the cover.

We set up our lights near the Houses of Parliament and waited for a break in the filming, but, not surprisingly, they were running late and we ended up taking the photo just as Big Ben chimed midnight. Given the time restriction, the photographs were done very quickly, but working with David is so easy that we only needed to shoot two rolls of film.

On seeing the contact sheets, there was one frame where he had this big smile, but his publicist told me that he would not approve it as he never smiled on his record covers. However, when we want through the photos together, David agreed that there was something special about this frame, and agreed for it to be used. To this day it’s the only time he ever smiled on a cover.”

"I’m so sad when I look back at these things sometimes and wonder where all the bric-a-brac went - the rings, and the passports, and the personal items. I had a very close friend, a girlfriend, in Berlin when I was living there, who unfortunately was dying of cancer, and she underwent chemotherapy treatment and went bald, and I gave her the fedora. I kept that fedora all those years and I gave her the fedora. She wore that until the day she died. Poor girl. But it had a good home for its last few months, so I know where that went."
