Description

Limited Edition Grey Vinyl release for the 45th Anniversary of this incredible, magnificent masterpiece. David Bowie’s Heroes was his twelfth studio album, and is the second installment of what has become known as the BERLIN TRILOGY (Low, Heroes & Lodger). The track “HEROES” was released as a single but only reached No 24 in the UK Singles chart (unbelievable). It went on to become one of Bowie’s most recognisable anthems and was also recorded by Bowie with both a French and German language vocal – check out HELDEN (the German version), awesome!!

Whilst the title track may have become the best known song on this album, the entire album is pure bliss – so if you’re new to this LP, don’t be alarmed by a tracklisting of unfamiliar titles, this album is an essential classic.

Tip – check out “Sons Of The Silent Age”

Anyway – here’s the real blurb….. (though the official blurb is clearly not counting the Deram album)

Originally released on 14th October, 1977, “Heroes” was David Bowie’s eleventh studio album. To celebrate its 45th anniversary, Parlophone is proud to announce a special limited edition ‘bricks & mortar’ outlet-only grey vinyl pressing of the album.

“Heroes” was a commercial success, peaking at #3 in the U.K. and #35 in the U.S., with NME and Melody Maker both naming it album of the year. The title track is now widely recognised as a classic and as one of Bowie’s most beloved songs, having been used in the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony and critically acclaimed films such as Moulin Rouge and Jojo Rabbit. It has also become one of Bowie’s most covered songs with interpretations by artists such as Prince, Coldplay, Motörhead, Depeche Mode, Lady Gaga, King Crimson and The Wallflowers.

After releasing the ground-breaking Low in January 1977, Bowie toured and recorded playing keyboards in Iggy Pop’s band. He returned that summer to the Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin to begin work on a new album. Unlike the rest of the so-called ‘Berlin Trilogy’, “Heroes” was the only Bowie album recorded there in its entirety. Produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti, the central band from the Low album returned, this time joined by King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp.
