David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ To Be Released On Vinyl For 45th Anniversary

To celebrate the 45th anniversary of David Bowie‘s twelfth studio album Heroes, Parlophone will release a special limited edition ‘bricks & mortar’ outlet-only grey vinyl pressing of the album on October 14.

Originally released on October 14, 1977, Heroes was a commercial success, peaking at No. 3 in the U.K. and No. 35 in the U.S., with NME and Melody Maker both naming it album of the year.

The title track is now widely recognized as a classic and one of Bowie’s most beloved songs, having been used in the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony and critically acclaimed films such as Moulin Rouge and Jojo Rabbit.

It has also become one of Bowie’s most covered songs with interpretations by artists such as Prince, Coldplay, Motörhead, Depeche Mode, Lady Gaga, King Crimson and The Wallflowers.

Also on October 14, Live In Berlin (1978) will be made available digitally for the first time.

Live In Berlin was originally released as an eight-song orange vinyl mini album exclusively available at the David Bowie Is. exhibition in Brooklyn, New York.
