A fabled ‘lost’ David Bowie album will finally be released later this year.
The album, Toy, was recorded in 2001 but never released due to a dispute between Bowie and his record label. But now the album will finally see the light of day – as part of the new Bowie box set Era Five: Brilliant Adventure, which collects Bowie’s albums from 1992-2001.
Toy will then be released as a standalone album on Jan. 7th. One of the tracks from Toy, “You’ve Got A Habit Of Leaving”, is out now on YouTube and digital platforms.
What is it that makes so-called ‘lost’ albums so exciting? What’s your favorite ‘era’ of Bowie’s long career?
