(hennemusic) David Bowie's team are marking the 50th anniversary of the release of his 1971 album, "Hunky Dory", with a lyric video for a 2021 Alternative Mix of the set's lead single, "Changes."

Due for release as a streaming single on December 27, the tune has been mixed from the original multi tracks by "Hunky Dory" co-producer Ken Scott, who explains: "The new version of 'Changes' is a fresh look at David's classic. When listening to the original multi-track, I discovered a few things that I had eliminated from the original mix and also a completely different sax solo at the end. It was those things that led me to try a new mix, trying for a slightly harder, more contemporary edge to it."

Originally released on December 17, 1971, "Hunky Dory" failed to make a significant dent in the charts in its first year of release, but it did so a year later following Bowie's breakthrough success with his fifth studio record, "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars."

On January 7, 2022 - the day before what would have been Bowie's 75th birthday and 50 years to the day since the U.K. release of "Changes" as a single - "Hunky Dory" will be issued as a limited edition 50th anniversary picture disc, featuring the 2015 vinyl remaster and a poster of David's original version of the annotated back cover image.

Bowie's estate has activated two immersive pop-ups in New York and London as part of a year-long celebration marking the late singer's upcoming 75th birthday. Watch the lyric video here.
