David Bowie's "Hunky Dory" album is getting a deluxe reissue!

Divine Symmetry arrives November 25th and will contain 48 previously unreleased tracks (live recordings, alternate versions and demos) on four CDs, the 2015 remaster of Hunky Dory on Blu-Ray audio, a 100-page hardback book of photos, as well as a 60-page replica of Bowie’s notebooks from the era.
