A Global News junta-se a varias plataformas mundiais para celebrar os 73 anos de Bowie. “I can’t read” é a segunda de seis músicas que estão a ser lançadas.
Parlophone Records is proud to unveil ‘I CAN’T READ ‘97’, the second instalment of DAVID BOWIE’s IS IT ANY WONDER? EP of six unreleased and rare tracks being released once a week. “Is it any wonder?”
‘I CAN’T READ’ originally appeared on Tin Machine’s eponymous debut album in 1989, and was a staple in the band’s live set. In the autumn of 1996, during the mixing stages for Earthling, David re-recorded the track – which, at one stage, appeared on a mastered version of the album.
A second version, featuring minor chords and a darker sound for the chorus, was recorded for Ang Lee’s film The Ice Storm. The full length version appeared on a single in 1998, while an edit featured on the film’s soundtrack album in 1997, both released by VelVel Records.
While the song’s third incarnation,‘I CAN’T READ ‘97’, was David’s preferred version, it was ultimately cut from Earthling and replaced at the last minute with ‘The Last Thing You Should Do’.
‘I CAN’T READ ‘97’ is produced by David Bowie, co-produced by Reeves Gabrels and Mark Plati, and mixed by Mark Plati. The track was recorded and mixed at Right Track Recording in New York and features Gail Ann Dorsey on bass and vocals, Mike Garson on piano, and Gabrels on guitar.
