ISO Records/ColumbiaThe expanded version of David Bowie's 2013 album, The Next Day, will be released this Tuesday, but fans can get a little preview of the three-disc box set now by watching a new promotional video that's been posted on Vimeo.com. The "unboxing" clip shows off the contents of The Next Day Extra, while featuring a segment of "Atomica," one of the bonus tracks included in the collection.
As displayed in the video, the package contains a booklet that boasts song lyrics and another that features a selection of photos, including stills from Bowie's recent videos filmed to accompany a few of his new tunes. In addition, each disc comes housed in a uniquely designed sleeve.
As previously reported, The Next Day Extra features the original 14-track album released this past March; a companion CD boasting 10 additional tunes, including five unreleased songs and two remixes; and a DVD containing four promotional videos.
Meanwhile, Bowie apparently is preparing to make some kind of exciting announcement, judging by a new message posted on his official website. Accompanying a new photo showing the rock legend peering sideways into a mirror is a note that reads "Good news coming," as well as a line from David's classic 1972 song "Moonage Daydream": "Keep your 'lectric eye on me babe."
