The David Bowie vaults still have many musical gifts to bestow upon us, and on October 12, another elaborate box set will be released by Parlophone Records. This news comes right after word of the David Bowie Is exhibit becoming an immersive digital experience in the fall.
Titled Loving the Alien (1983-1988), the set is the fourth in an ongoing series of box set releases paying tribute to Bowie’s impeccable catalog of music, starting in 1969 and working up toward more recent releases.
