Will we ever see another Bowie single in the shops  

I notice today on Bowienet that the Serious moonlight EP which precedes the album will only be available as a digital download (see news pages for details). This is the second time now, The Arcade fire/Bowie collaboration is being released in this way too. I must admit if I am goig to buy a single/EP/album I like the whole package, the disc, the cover, sleevenotes etc. So reading this and considering the lack of a sizable hit single for many years (the last UK hit being Everyone says Hi) I wonder if we will ever see a traditionally retailed Bowie single again.

There is not real cost in selling a single over the internet, no distribution, no printing, pressing costs, so the money is shared between the artist, the publishers and the download site.

Since everyone says hi, there has been the New killer star dvd single, the aborted Never get old single, the 12" only Rebel never gets old single and that is it. None of them given a major release and none of them getting anywhere chartwise.Bowie has left the singles market for good. I know that Bowie has said he doesn't think of himself as a singles artist, and thought (wrongly) that he was useless at picking singles. Now I fear he has withdrawn from the race entirely.

What is the sound format of these digital downloads? If it's only crappy mp3s, they can keep them. I need CD quality for my hi-fi system.

God, if You exist, please save my soul, if I have one.

I think it is through iTunes, what format do they use, I don't think it is mp3 is it?

Yeah I've seen them and the picture covers are fab



Especially the Space Oddity one, I don't think Bowie is correct on his assumptions of "in the future there will be no record shops", It's too far fetched and not correct, these would make fantastic items to buy not necessarily from a shop ( if it's expensive and not worth while ) but from a fan site, I am not a great fan of downloading tracks I prefer to buy them already packaged as a product.


Will there be another Bowie single? yes of course you just wait for the next album, at the moment it appears he's just happy releasing old material, this cannot go forever.

In reply to:

A very scary thought.
