SUE (or IN A SEASON OF CRIME) the new single from David Bowie taken from the forthcoming definitive collection of Bowie’s music NOTHING HAS CHANGED is released on Parlophone on November 17th.

SUE was recorded this Summer in New York with the Maria Schneider Orchestra and produced by Bowie and Tony Visconti. Maria Schneider, who also arranged the track, has won numerous Grammies and is the leader of one of the best big bands in the USA. The song features Donny McCaslin as soloist on tenor saxophone and Ryan Keberle soloist on trombone. Bowie wrote the lyrics for SUE and collaborated on the music with Maria Schneider.

SUE will receive its world premiere on Elbow lead singer Guy Garvey’s BBC 6 Music show on Sunday October 12th.

Jonathan Barnbrook who worked on THE NEXT DAY, HEATHEN and REALITY albums has designed the artwork for NOTHING HAS CHANGED. Of the artwork Barnbook says, “A different image appears on each use. The linking theme is Bowie looking in the mirror. Something which was a strong enough ‘archetype’ to provide an immediately identifiable visual link but make it clear this was a collection of songs through the experience of one persons life, not necessarily a specific concept or period of time as albums tend to be”.

NOTHING HAS CHANGED collects together for the first time the definitive collection of Bowie’s music from 1964 to 2014 and features some previously unreleased material as well as tracks making their debut on CD.
