.
(Gibson) David Bowie will release a new mix of his 1977 single "Sound And Vision" from his classic 'Berlin Trilogy' album Low. The new mix of "Sound And Vision" will be released on October 4 via Warner Music.

Sonjay Prabhajar has returned to the original master tapes to tease out elements that were reigned in on the original mix, including Ray Young's piano and the backing vocal recorded by Mary Hopkin, who was credited as Mary Visconti on the original version as she was married to Bowie producer Tony Visconti at the time.

Hopkins had a number one single "Those Were The Days" in 1968 and was one of the first musicians to be signed to the Beatles' Apple label. She sang on many albums produced by Visconti, by artists including Tom Paxton, Ralph McTell, Bert Jansch, The Radiators From Space, Thin Lizzy, Carmen, Sarstedt Brothers, Osibisa, Sparks, Hazel O'Connor and Elaine Paige.

The new mix of "Sound And Vision" was commissioned for an ad campaign for the Sony Xperia Z smartphone ad campaign. The ad is directed by Rarsem Singh, who directed R.E.M's "Losing My Religion" video. more on this story
