David Bowie - Metrobolist (aka The Man Who Sold The World)
The Man Who Sold The World looking and sounding reliably handsome at fifty.
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 with the Space Oddity 50th anniversary release; Metrobolist is released on a pot luck pressing. Mostly on 180g black vinyl, it will also however appear on 2020 limited edition handwritten numbered copies on gold vinyl (# 1971 - 2020) and on white vinyl (# 1 - 1970)... Guys, they are all randomly distributed.

A bit more about the colour vinyl thing. It's really good fun, but we totally have no way of knowing which edition we'll get. They are in effect blind packaged, we can't pick out any specific colour.

Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.
Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.
