Over the weekend David Bowie premiered a brand new song titled “Sue (Or In A Season of Crime).” Recorded in New York this past summer with longtime collaborator Tony Visconti and the Maria Schneider Orchestra the track was written specifically for the inclusion of Bowie’s upcoming retrospective compilation Nothing Has Changed.

In addition to sharing the new song, Bowie has revealed that the compilation will be sold with three covers varients to choose from, each showcasing Bowie in different eras of his career looking in a mirror. A different image appears on each use,” says designer Jonathan Barnbrook in a statement. “The linking theme is Bowie looking in the mirror. Something which was a strong enough ‘archetype’ to provide an immediately identifiable visual link but make it clear this was a collection of songs through the experience of one person’s life, not necessarily a specific concept or period of time as albums tend to be.”

As if that wasn’t enough, the tracklists for each version will also follow different orders: the 3xCD edition will be in reverse chronological order, the 2xCD edition in chronological order, and the double LP a total mix.

Scroll down below to listen to “Sue,” taken from a radio rip of its BBC Radio 6 premiere, and view the artwork. “Sue” will be available as a digital download the same day as the box set on Nov. 18 in the U.S. A limited edition 10’’ of the single will arrive on Nov. 28. The digital single, 10’‘, and full retrospective will be out in the UK on Nov. 17.
