Originalmente titulado metrobolist, el nombre del álbum se cambio en el último minuto a The Man who sold the World, título que se utiliza para lanzar finalmente el disco en 1970.

Ahora por fin se reedita bajo su título original: metrobolist, celebrando el 50 aniversario.

Ha sido remezclado por el productor original Tony Visconti, con la excepción de la pista "after All", que Tony consideró perfecta tal como está.

Cuenta con la especial colaboración del guitarrista Mick Ronson quien participaron en sucesivos trabajos de Bowie durante la década de 1970.

El arte de esta edición 50 aniversario ha sido creado por Mike Weller, quien estaba detrás del diseño original del álbum y que Mercury se negó a publicar.

Ahora, por primera vez, el fan de Bowie podrá tener en sus manos una edición que refleja la idea original con la que se concibe el álbum.

La edición vinilo se publica en varios formatos: vinilo negro de 180 gramos, edición limitada numerada en vinilo dorado (# 1971 - 2020) y en vinilo blanco (# 1 - 1970), todas ellas se distribuirán al azar.

 

ENGLISH

2020 sees the 50th Anniversary of the release of David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold The World in North America. The album marks the beginning of a collaboration with guitarist Mick Ronson that would last through classic works including Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane, as well as the first in a 10-year series of indispensable albums stretching through 1980’s Scary Monsters.

Originally titled Metrobolist, the album's name was changed at the last minute to The Man Who Sold The World. The 2020 re-release of the album under its Metrobolist moniker has been remixed by original producer Tony Visconti, with the exception of the track ‘After All’ which Tony considered perfect as is, and is featured in its 2015 remaster incarnation.

The Metrobolist 50th anniversary artwork has been created by Mike Weller who was behind the historically controversial “dress” cover which Mercury Records refused to release.

As well as a 180g black vinyl edition, it will come in 2020 limited edition handwritten numbered copies on gold vinyl (# 1971 - 2020) and on white vinyl (# 1 - 1970) all randomly distributed.
