While you were sleeping off NYE on Friday, LA-based Manimal Vinyl and Brit-based Duran Duran teamed up to announce the details of the label's forthcoming David Bowie tribute, which, as of this writing, is still unnamed.
Among the many potential highlights are covers of Bowie songs by the aforementioned Duran Duran (“Boys Keep Swinging”), French first lady Carla Bruni (“Absolute Beginners”), Vivian Girls (“John, I'm Only Dancing”), Ariana Delawari (“Ziggy Stardust”) and pretty much the entire roster of the consistently surprising Manimal label.
Full track listing after the jump:
Duran Duran's announcement:
Manimal finally announces the final and confirmed line-up for their anxiously awaited tribute to David Bowie (due in stores May 2010). 100% of the net profits will go to War Child UK. This album will be available as a limited CD, limited double LP and download with extra tracks unavailable anywhere else.
Expect tracks to start leaking out around February 15th, 2010.
