Demo Of ‘Let’s Dance’ Unveiled On David Bowie’s Birthday | Music News

 

Unexpected by many and just in time for what would be his 71st birthday, an unreleased demo of David Bowie‘s “Let’s Dance” managed to find its way onto the internet today.

 

Back in 1983, this version was produced by both Nile Rogers and Bowie himself and presents a whole different side of the deceased musical icon as it – compared to the published, properly mixed one – showcases the song in its full rawness. It even includes Bowie’s original comments at the end of it, stating “That’s it! That’s it! Got it.”

 

When asked about the partnership, Rogers stated:

 

“I’ve been blessed with a wonderful career but my creative partnership with David Bowie ranks very, very, very high on the list of my most important and rewarding collaborations. (…) This demo gives you, the fans, a bird’s eye view of the very start of it! I woke up on my first morning in Montreux with David peering over me. He had an acoustic guitar in his hands and exclaimed, ‘Nile, darling, I think this is a HIT!'”

 

While the video has since been removed, we shall keep a keen eye out for any new developments and you will definitely be the first to know if it’s back.

 

#Peace.Love.DavidBowie
