On 24th May, 2024, the exact day of its Golden Jubilee, Diamond Dogs will be issued as a limited edition 50th
anniversary picture disc LP, pressed from the same master as the half speed version. The first single from the album,
‘Rebel Rebel', reached number 5 in the UK and the album would also reach similar heights on both sides of the Atlantic
reaching number 1 in the UK and number 5 in the USA.
This new pressing of Diamond Dogs was cut on a customised late Neumann VMS80 lathe with fully recapped
electronics from 192kHz restored masters of the original master tapes, with no additional processing on transfer. The
half-speed was cut by John Webber at AIR Studios
The writing of the album was influenced by Bowie not being able to secure the rights for a theatrical production of
George Orwell's 1984 and the work of William S. Burroughs, whom Bowie had interviewed for Rolling Stone in
November 1973. The songs on the album created an urban apocalyptic scenario with Bowie appearing on the cover as
a controversial half-man, half-dog hybrid painted by the Belgian artist Guy Peellaert from photos by the worldrenowned photographer Terry O'Neill. Since its release, tracks from Diamond Dogs have been covered by artists such
as Beck, Tina Turner, Duran Duran, Def Leppard, Joan As Police Woman, Dead Or Alive and The Struts.
