15. February 2024, London. Today marks the 50th anniversary of the release of David Bowie's groundbreaking single "Rebel Rebel". It appeared in a remixed form on Bowie's eighth and musically most adventurous album of the early 1970s, Diamond Dogs.

On May 24, 2024, exactly on the day of the Golden Jubilee, Diamond Dogs will be released as a limited edition anniversary LP with half-speed mastering and as a picture disc LP pressed from the same master. The album's first single, the aforementioned "Rebel Rebel", reached #5 in the UK, and the album reached similar heights on both sides of the Atlantic, reaching #1 in the UK and #5 in the US.

The making of the album was influenced by Bowie's inability to secure the rights to a theatrical production of George Orwell's 1984, as well as the work of William S. Burroughs, whom Bowie had interviewed for Rolling Stone in November 1973. The album's songs created an urban, apocalyptic scenario, with Bowie appearing on the cover as a controversial half-human-dog hybrid painted by Belgian artist Guy Peellaert from photographs by world-famous photographer Terry O'Neill. Since its release, tracks from Diamond Dogs have been covered by artists such as Beck, Tina Turner, Duran Duran, Def Leppard, Joan As Police Woman, Dead Or Alive and The Struts.

To promote the album, Bowie undertook his most theatrical and elaborate tour to date, filmed for the infamous BBC program Cracked Actor and the classic David Live album. Despite written promises to fans that the tour would also reach the UK, it never took place. For the second leg of the US tour, Bowie scaled back the show and began to take his material in a more soulful direction, which would come to full fruition with the release of his next album, Young Americans.

This new pressing of Diamond Dogs was cut from the restored 192kHz masters of the original master tapes on a custom-built Neumann VMS80 lathe with fully reworked electronics, with no additional processing in the transfer. The half-speed was cut by John Webber at AIR Studios.
