David Bowie - Let's Dance (Demo) - Parlophone's 71st birthday Bowie treat

Today would have been David Bowie's 71st Birthday. Parlophone have made available a previously unreleased demo to celebrate this fact. A pointer toward a future Record Store Day release or even the next box set?

The demo was recorded in Switzerland with Nile Rodgers - “I woke up on my first morning in Montreux with David peering over me,” he said. “He had an acoustic guitar in his hands and exclaimed, ‘Nile, darling, I think this is a HIT! The time we spent mixing it just before Christmas was full of tears as it felt like David was in the room with us. Happy Birthday David, I love you and we all miss you!”
