Aladdin Sane 50th Anniversary - 15% off Prints!
18 Apr 2023
Aladdin Sane, the seminal album by David Bowie, turns 50 years old this week. In celebration, we are delighted to announce an exciting reader offer for Bowie fans, details of which can be found below.
Released on 19th April 1973, Bowie's sixth studio album builds on the glam rock sound of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, but added a more experimental, avant-garde edge. The album's title, a pun on "A Lad Insane," reflects the album's themes of madness and alienation and the album's iconic cover art, featuring Bowie in his famous lightning bolt makeup, a continuation of the Ziggy Stardust persona, remains one of the most recognizable images in music history.
As Bowie explains in Moonage Daydream
, most of the album's songs had been written during the Ziggy Stardust US tour of 1972 and were quickly assimilated into his concert set lists in 1973. The title track, with its iconic piano riff and Bowie's haunting vocals, became one of his most well-known, with other standout tracks including the glam rock-inspired 'The Jean Genie', the melancholic ballad 'Lady Grinning Soul', and 'Drive-In Saturday'.
In Moonage Daydream
, the writing of Aladdin Sane
, its release, and subsequent performances 50 years ago are documented extensively in Mick Rock's photographs and in David Bowie's seminal account of the times. To secure your copy click here
