When we announced earlier this month that the publishing rights to David Bowie’s entire catalog had been sold for over $250 million to Warner Chappell, we didn’t know how quickly we’d start selling. see the results. Now, two weeks after the acquisition was announced, all of Bowie’s discography is set to be available on the Peloton exercise equipment app.
Peloton presented The David Bowie Collection, which makes every release in Bowie’s catalog, “from deep cuts to his greatest hits,” available for Peloton users to select as the soundtrack to their workouts. There are also three new remixes from St. Vincent, Honey Dijon and Tokimonsta (who all consider themselves Peloton users) who are also part of the Collection. St. Vincent remixes “It’s No Game, Pt 1”, Honey Dijon chose “Let’s Dance”, as she says “it’s a true celebration of music and movement”, while Tokimonsta gives a spin to “Golden Years”.
St. Vincent’s Annie Clark shared her thoughts on the collaboration in a statement:
“I chose ‘It’s No Game (Pt. 1)’ because there’s a Part 2 on the record, and I figured Bowie wouldn’t care so much if I did a Part 3. I wanted to take Bowie’s Throat vocal take from Part 1 and bring it to the fore ‘Three steps to heavaaaaaaaaaaahn…’”
The David Bowie Collection becomes available on the Peloton app from January 19 and is available to all users.
