David Bowie - Song For Berlin album flac
David Bowie moved to Berlin in the mid-70s in the grip of a cocaine addiction. But the city purged his demons and pushed him to new creative heights. Rory MacLean remembers their nights in his Hauptstraße flat – and one wild night out with Iggy.

The Berlin Trilogy, or Berlin Triptych, consists of three consecutively released studio albums by English singer and songwriter David Bowie: Low (1977), "Heroes" (1977) and Lodger (1979). The albums were recorded after Bowie took up residence in West Berlin in late 1976, and saw him experiment with elements of electronic, krautrock, ambient, and world music in collaboration with American producer Tony Visconti and English musician Brian Eno.
David Bowie’s years in Berlin were together with Iggy Pop in an apartment in Schöneberg. Next to it is Bowie’s favourite gay-friendly bar that exists until today. But let’s start this guide correctly. What to see, where to go at David Bowie’s Berlin. A Visit to Hansa Studios. David Bowie recorded at the famous Hansa Studios. The studio is not far from the reconstructed Potsdamer Platz, but for the story, I’m about to tell you, please imagine the wall instead of the giant skyscrapers made of glass. Heroes are one of Bowie’s most famous songs. At Hansa Studios Bowie recorded only 2 of his world-famous Berlin Trilogy, the last album as just composed in the city but was produced with Brian Eno in Switzerland and New York City. So from Heroes, Low and Lodge, only the first two are part of this historical place.
David Bowie depicted an alien in the 1976 film "The Man Who Fell To Earth". Bowie made more influential albums than "The Next Day," but never, I'd surmise, did he produce one more heartfelt. Nor is it accidental that he chose to recycle the cover of an album from his "Berlin period. Berlin was the place the pop star who posed as Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, the Thin White Duke, etc. visited and revisited whenever he wanted to get real: The place where the alien fell to earth. As culturally interesting as it was, walled-in West Berlin could be an impossibly grim cage. The thought of Bowie, Iggy Pop and Brian Eno recording at Hansa Studios gave the city some much needed vibrancy - no matter how overplayed and overwrought the song "Heroes" might be. No wonder then that the 2014 David Bowie exhibition in the Martin-Gropius-Bau museum was the town's hottest ticket from the morning it opened to the afternoon it closed.

It’s interesting that of all the albums here, he chose to fluff up the least celebrated album of the Berlin triptych. Incidentally, it’s the only album of the three for which Bowie crafted the lyrics, rather than improvising them after the tracks were complete.

Bowie’s Berlin Years -the period in which the singer released the groundbreaking, futuristic albums Low, Heroes, and Lodger-were nothing short of monumental moments in the history of pop music. There’s not a bad song on Lodger, Visconti says. That's why it's sustained interest over the years. In general people accepted it. But knowing how David was always constantly moving on and moving forward, I’m sure no one ever thought we’d revisit it and remix it.
