David Bowie's previously unreleased album "Toy" will be released, and the cover is... something else

This cover is completely WTF inducing, but it's also some Bowie weirdness that I love. lol

This album has already been bootlegged to hell, but it'd be lovely to her it remastered.

Edit: Oh, just realized that the photo is actually of Bowie as a baby, with his adult face cropped on.

So looking forward to this release.

I'm not yet all that convinced by the artwork, but if if was his choice, respect as always. smile

I even love Bowie's nineties output, just like Dylan's eighties.

It's always interesting to give it a shot.

David Bowie Film, Based on ‘Thousands’ of Hours of Rare Footage
by Manori Ravindran • Nov 18, 2021 • Variety

Brett Morgen, the freewheeling director behind “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck,” “Jane” and “The Kid Stays in the Picture,” is finalizing a top-secret David Bowie project based on thousands of hours of rare performance footage of the musician, most of it previously uncirculated, sources confirm to Variety.

Morgen has been at work on the Bowie film, for which an official title has not been disclosed, for the last four years. A source close to the production cryptically describes it as “neither documentary nor biography, but an immersive cinematic experience built, in part, upon thousands of hours of never before seen material.”

Sources say live concert footage plays a central role in the film, and that Morgen is eyeing an IMAX release. The filmmaker wears a number of hats on the project, taking on editing, writing and producing duties, in addition to directing.

A Sundance Film Festival premiere in late January could be in the cards. The Park City fest — which will have a significant in-person presence this year after the pandemic forced the 2021 event to go largely virtual — falls just after the six-year anniversary of Bowie’s death on Jan. 10, 2016.

The musician’s long-time producer Tony Visconti is adding his bona fides to the film, serving as music producer. Meanwhile, the Oscar-winning sound team behind “Bohemian Rhapsody” is also mixing and designing the project. Re-recording mixers are Oscar winner Paul Massey and David Giammarco (“Ford v Ferrari”), while the sound design team includes John Warhurst and Nina Hartstone, both of whom picked up Academy Awards for the Freddie Mercury biopic.

Morgen acquired the rights to the material himself, and BMG and Live Nation are financiers as well as producers, alongside the director’s own production banner, Public Road.

Crucially, the pic’s been made with the support and cooperation of the David Bowie estate. Bowie’s widow, the model Iman, recently told Variety that the family is firmly against authorizing a biopic of Bowie’s life: “It’s always a no. We always ask each other, ‘Would he do it?’ He wouldn’t,” as evidenced by Todd Haynes’ 1998 film “Velvet Goldmine,” which has a clearly Bowie-like figure at the center and is named after one of his songs, but for which Bowie declined to license his music. But clearly, the family was more amenable to a live concert-oriented documentary about the singer, particularly from someone with Morgen’s track record.

And so good to hear from Iman "NO" to authorizing a Biopic. It's one thing when the person is alive for them to authorize it but these after death ones are different. Despite how big they are and Queens was huge, the band took ages with fighting with studios because everyone wanted to do a bare bones story and the band did not want to tarnish Mercury who is not here to debate it, so that's why Cohen was let go. I am hoping a Prince one Never makes it, documentaries are one thing but hiring some actor to be prince no sorry, same for Bowie, I don't care if they are dead ringers for them in looks and mannerisms don't want to see it happen.
