Jonathan Barnbook/DavidBowie.comIf you've been itching to hear the new remix of David Bowie's "Love Is Lost" that will appear on the rock veteran's upcoming expanded three-disc edition of his latest album, The Next Day, you're in luck. A stream of the 10-minute recording, which was remixed by former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy, has just been unveiled at the Consequence of Sound website.
Titled "Love Is Lost (***** Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy for the DFA)," Murphy explains that the track was inspired by American minimalist composer Steve Reich, who used tape loops to create phasing patterns in his music. "I was obsessed with Steve Reich's clapping music, so I opened [the remix] with a phasing clapping piece," he tells Consequence of Sound.
As previously announced, the deluxe version of Bowie's The Next Day, titled The Next Day Extra, will be released on November 5. It will include the original 14-track album issued back in March; a companion CD featuring 10 more tunes, including five previously unreleased songs, the "Love Is Lost" remix and an additional remix; and a DVD containing four promotional videos.
