David Bowie's 'Let's Dance' Demo released on his birthday

Today would have been David Bowie's 71st birthday. The legendary musician died just under 2 years ago, having lost a battle to liver cancer, a news he kept private.

On this day, Nile Rodgers, a friend of David Bowie and fellow musician, has released a demo of Bowie's 'Let's Dance'.



In a statement released on David Bowie's official website, Nile Rodgers issued a statement on the development of this demo, describing how excited Bowie was to develop this particular tune.

In Nile's own words: “I’ve been blessed with a wonderful career but my creative partnership with David Bowie ranks very, very, very high on the list of my most important and rewarding collaborations. This demo gives you, the fans, a bird's eye view of the very start of it! I woke up on my first morning in Montreux with David peering over me. He had an acoustic guitar in his hands and exclaimed, “Nile, darling, I think this is a HIT!”

The demo is available on Spotify, Apple Music, iTunes and Deezer.
