Die cut sleeve with poster.

Original release date was to be 17 April 2020 (the day before RSD 2020) but was held back due to the Corona virus crisis.

A limited edition picture disc replicating the 1972 RCA edition of Space Oddity. The disc features the Mick Rock shots that were used on the front and back of the original sleeve, albeit in much better quality due to him supplying new scans of the negatives. The pictures were taken at Bowie’s then home, Haddon Hall, in the spring of 1972. The album also comes with a replica of the cover image poster which was part of the package at the time. The back sleeve image was taken in Zowie Bowie’s (Duncan Jones) pink bedroom. Along with The Man Who Sold The World, the November 1972 edition of Space Oddity was repackaged for the new Bowie audience to make available the increasingly hard to find Philips and Mercury originals. This picture disc features the 2009 40th anniversary remaster of the album, which was undertaken to match as closely as possible to the original vinyl issue.
