Following 2015’s Five Years and last year’s Who Can I Be Now?, Parlophone will in September release A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN [1977-1982] on a 13LP David Bowie box set that includes remastered versions of arguably his most critically acclaimed albums, including the so-called ‘Berlin Trilogy’ of Low, Heroes and Lodger and 1980’s Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps), his last studio album for RCA.
In addition to the remastered version, the box set will also feature 1979’s Lodger album (which delivered the hits D.J. and Boys Keep Swinging) newly REMIXED by Tony Visconti. This remix was started “with David’s blessing” before his passing in January last year. Visconti has revisited the original multi-tracks and remixed the album “to better highlight the album’s nuances”. This version of the album will also feature newly ‘remixed’ artwork featuring unseen images from the original cover photographic session from the archive of the Estate of photographer Duffy. This remix of Lodger is exclusive to this box set (along with the Re:Call 3 compilation, more of which below) and also won’t be available in any of the digital packages.
The live album Stage (which was issued in 1978 between Heroes and Lodger) is included here in both the original version (exclusively on yellow vinyl in the LP box) and the 2005 reissue; the latter restored the original running order and added some bonus tracks. In fact. two more (previously unreleased) bonus tracks are added to the version in this new box set – The Jean Genie and Suffragette City – taking the track count to 22.
Other content of note is a “Heroes” EP, on a separate disc, with four foreign language variants, and the third ‘Re:Call’ compilation.

NOTE re comments on remastering, the following from statement from Julian Stockton, David Bowie's publicist. This sale is for the set as is and is NOT returnable due to the following.
“DAVID BOWIE A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN – HEROES
Concerning ‘Heroes’ what fans are hearing is not a level drop. This is, through mastering, an attempt to resolve an issue that exists on the original master tape.
On the flat unmastered transfer, there was a temporary loss of energy on the track just before 2.50. During the album mastering some high-frequency automation (in the region of +- 6dB) has been added in order to compensate for this. So to clarify, there is not a drop in volume, there is a high frequency boost for a couple of seconds at the loss of energy which then returns to normal and the track continues to the end at a level consistent to the start.
As the co-producer of ‘Heroes’ Tony Visconti, was both fully involved and approved the remastering of this and all original albums within the set.
DAVID BOWIE A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN – REMASTERING
The albums contained in A New Career In A New Town are how Tony Visconti, who was not involved in past remasterings, always wanted them to sound. He was previously hampered by the restrictions of vinyl regarding the bottom end.
Any tape hiss on the albums comes straight from the original analogue tapes. For A New Career In A New Town, there was no de-noising as had happened on the previous remastering of these records. The hiss is far more true to the sound of the original analogue tapes which Bowie and Visconti would have heard when making the record.”
