Black Tie, White Noise - 10th Anniversary 2CD/DVD

Misc. Album Details

Black Tie, White Noise - 10th Anniversary 2CD/DVDEMI Catalogue are proud to release David Bowie's Black Tie White Noise on 4th August 2003 as a special edition three disc set.

Disc 1 is the original twelve track album while CD 2 has rare and previously unreleased tracks and mixes. The third disc contains the Black Tie White Noise home video originally released as a VHS and now made available for the first time officially on DVD.

Originally released in 1993 on Arista and Savage Records, Black Tie White Noise reunited Bowie with legendary producer Nile Rodgers for the first time since their collaboration on Let's Dance. Appearing for the first time since the days of Ziggy Stardust is Spiders guitarist Mick Ronson. Other guests include avant-garde jazz musician Lester Bowie and new jack swing vocalist Al B. Sure!. According to reports at the time, Bowie recorded the album as a wedding present for his wife Iman and as a response to the L.A. riots and the racial tension surrounding them. Black Tie White Noise was regarded by critics as a return to form following Bowie's foray into the group set up of Tin Machine. Entering the UK album charts at number one (deposing Suede's debut album), Black Tie... signalled a commercial renaissance whilst maintaining Bowie's reputation for innovation. In the US the album received a limited distribution on the short lived Savage Records label but still reached a chart peak of number thirty nine.

The album features the hit singles 'Jump They Say', 'Black Tie White Noise' and 'Miracle Goodnight' and a cover of Morrissey's 'I Know It's Gonna Happen Someday'. Morrissey's original was recorded for his album Your Arsenal which was produced by Mick Ronson and is clearly influenced by 'Rock 'n' Roll Suicide' from Bowie's own Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars. Bowie said at the time he tried to record '...Someday' as if he were back in 1974 - and his interpretation of the song was highly praised by Morrissey himself. Other covers included are Cream's 'I Feel Free', which Bowie and Ronson used to cover in concert back in '72, and 'Nite Flights' by The Walker Brothers from the album of the same name which also contains Scott Walker's seminal 'The Electrician'. Bowie had been a fan of Walker's voice since the late 60's and the material on the Nite Flights album almost led to the two collaborating.

Of the other tracks 'You've Been Around' is a radical reworking of a Tin Machine era live song, 'Pallas Athena' and 'Looking For Lester' are two experimental dance and jazz infused instrumentals respectively and 'Don't Let Me Down And Down' which is a reworking, with English lyrics, of 'Jangan Susahkan Hatiku' an Indonesian love song. The Indonesian vocal version can be found on CD 2 of the limited edition set.

The two tracks that top and tail the album, 'The Wedding' and 'The Wedding Song' respectively, are based on the same backing track. 'The Wedding' is an instrumental composed for David's wedding and musically attempts to integrate both the Church Of England and Muslim ethics of the partnership. 'The Wedding Song', however, is basically a love song to his bride and is an effective way of ending the set.

This is the first time Black Tie White Noise has been available through EMI, and follows on from the hugely successful Aladdin Sane and Ziggy Stardust reissues.
