A collection of previously unheard David Bowie tracks has been compiled into a new two-CD set titled The Width of a Circle.

The set, which will arrive on May 28, will feature 21 recordings from 1970, including non-album singles, a BBC in Concert l session, music for a TV play called Pierrot in Turquoise or The Looking Glass Murders (in which Bowie himself was cast as a mime) and new remixes from Bowie's longtime collaborator Tony Visconti.

The release serves as a complementary album to last year's 50th-anniversary re-release of 1970's The Man Who Sold the World, which was presented under the album's original title, Metrobolist. The new double album takes its name from the opening track to The Man Who Sold the World, which Bowie titled after a painting by one of his friend's, George Underwood.

Four of the songs showcase the late singer backed by the Hype, his supporting band at the time that included Visconti on bass, as well as another trusted Bowie sideman, Mick Ronson on guitar.

In addition to the songs, a picture disc version of The Man Who Sold the World album and a 10″ LP edition featuring four 2020 remixes will also be released.

You can see the track listing for the two-CD set below.
