David Bowie’s ‘Moonage Daydream’ Soundtrack to Feature Unreleased Live Tracks, New Mixes

Ahead of the release of the David Bowie documentary Moonage Daydream, details of the film’s soundtrack have been revealed, with the companion collection boasting unreleased live versions, album cuts, interview excerpts, orchestral performances, and film-specific remixes of classic Bowie tracks.

As a preview of the soundtrack’s exclusive “Moonage Daydream” mixes, the Bowie estate shared the version of “Modern Love” that features in director Brett Morgen’s doc:

“This version is a unique mix starting with the isolated piano motif from the track, building up into the chorus before ending on the a cappella backing vocals offering an insight into the individual elements that create the classic we all know and love,” Bowie’s site said of the “Moonage Daydream” mix of the Let’s Dance party starter.

Other highlights from the Moonage Daydream soundtrack include a 1973 live medley of “The Jean Genie” and the Beatles’ “Love Me Do” that features Jeff Beck on guitar — a performance that was recorded during Bowie’s last-ever Ziggy Stardust concert — as well as an unreleased 1974 live take on “Rock n’ Roll With Me.”

The digital version of the Moonage Daydream soundtrack will arrive on Sept. 16, the same day the documentary hits theaters and IMAX. The companion album is available to preorder now on CD, with a vinyl release planned for 2023.
