David Bowie - Love Is Lost remix

David Bowie ended a decade-long silence earlier this year when he released his very good new album The Next Day, and a new three-disc deluxe edition of the album will include a bunch of new tracks. One of those tracks is a massive 10-minute remix of his track “Love Is Lost” from former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy, who met David Bowie when Bowie recorded his backing vocals on Arcade Fire’s Murphy-produced “Reflektor.” And this morning, Murphy’s Hello Steve Reich mix of “Love Is Lost” hit the internet. Murphy is exactly the guy you want doing 10-minute remixes of David Bowie songs, and his version of “Love Is Lost” is a sprawling itchy-synth soundscape that references a couple of different eras of Bowie’s career; it’s built on a Reich-style mesmeric handclap bed. You can listen to the entire remix below.

The special edition of The Next Day is out 11/5 on Columbia.
