The legendary singer would’ve been 71 today. Here’s an archive recording of ‘Let’s Dance’ from 1982, recorded with Nile Rodgers.

In a statement on the David Bowie website, erstwhile Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers (who produced the track) said:

“I’ve been blessed with a wonderful career but my creative partnership with David Bowie ranks very, very, very high on the list of my most important and rewarding collaborations.”

“This demo gives you, the fans, a bird's eye view of the very start of it! I woke up on my first morning in Montreux with David peering over me. He had an acoustic guitar in his hands and exclaimed, “Nile, darling, I think this is a HIT!”.
