New David Bowie box sets, ‘Brilliant Adventure (1992–2001)’ and ‘TOY (TOY:BOX),’ due in the coming months

Parlophone Records/ISO Records
Plans have been unveiled for two new archival David Bowie box sets that will be released in the coming months.

One is the fifth installment in the series of expansive collections focusing on different periods in the late rock icon’s career, Brilliant Adventure (1992–2001), which is due out on November 26. The other is an expanded version of Bowie’s legendary unreleased 2001 album TOY, titled TOY (TOY:BOX), which will be issued on January 7, 2022.

Brilliant Adventure will be available as an 11-CD set, a 15-LP vinyl package and digitally. The box set includes remastered editions of five Bowie studio albums — 1993’s Black Tie White Noise, 1993’s The Buddha of Suburbia soundtrack, 1995’s 1.Outside, 1997’s Earthing and 1999’s ‘hours…’. It also includes the previously unreleased live album BBC Radio Theatre, London, June 27, 2000; the Re:Call 5 compilation, featuring alternative versions, B-sides, soundtrack recordings and more; and the aforementioned TOY.

TOY features updated versions of select early Bowie songs recorded mostly live in the studio with members of his touring band at the time. David had hoped to release the album quickly but when his plan was delayed, he put the project aside and moved on to his next record, Heathen.

TOY (TOY:BOX) will be available as a three-CD set and a six-disc 10-inch vinyl collection. The package will include the originally planned album, alternative mixes of the TOY tracks and tunes intended as B-sides, and stripped-down, mostly acoustic mixes of the songs.

One TOY track, an updated rendition of the 1965 Bowie song “You’ve Got a Habit of Leaving,” has been released as an advance digital single.

You can pre-order Brilliant Adventure (1992–2001) and TOY (TOY:BOX) now. Visit DavidBowie.com for more information.

DAVID BOWIE 5. BRILLIANT ADVENTURE (1992 – 2001)
RELEASED ON PARLOPHONE/ISO RECORDS 26th NOVEMBER, 2021

=========================================

DAVID BOWIE TOY (TOY:BOX) – BOX SET – (THE LEGENDARY UNRELEASED ALBUM BOXSET) (RELEASE 2022)

Toy (toy:box) -box Set-
CD | 3 disks
Release-datum: 7 januari 2022
Label: Parlophone
Barcode: 0190296773372

TOY:BOX is a special 3CD edition of the previously unreleased TOY album by David Bowie.

The ‘capture the moment’ approach of the recording sessions are extended to the sleeve artwork designed by Bowie featuring a photo of him as a baby with a contemporary face. The package also contains a 16-page book featuring previously unseen photographs by Frank Ockenfels 3.

Recorded following David’s triumphant Glastonbury 2000 performance, Bowie entered the studio with his band, Mark Plati, Sterling Campbell, Gail Ann Dorsey, Earl Slick, Mike Garson, Holly Palmer and Emm Gryner, to record new interpretations of songs he’d first recorded between 1964-1971. David planned to record the album ‘old school’ with the band playing live, choose the best takes and then release it as soon as possible. The label said, ’No.’

Included in TOY:BOX is a second CD of alternative mixes and versions including proposed B-Sides, later mixes by Tony Visconti and the ‘Tibet Version’ of Silly Boy Blue featuring Philip Glass on piano and Moby on guitar. The third CD features ‘Unplugged & Somewhat Slightly Electric’ mixes of thirteen TOY tracks.
