David Bowie’s previously unreleased album Toy will be made available as a part of the latest Bowie box set from Parlophone/ISO, David Bowie 5. Brilliant Adventure (19922001). The set will include a plethora of studio albums and compilations from the ’90s and early 2000s: Black Tie White Noise, The Buddha Of Suburbia, 1.Outside, Earthing, ‘hours…’, the live album BBC Radio Theatre, London, June 27, 2000, Re:Call 5, and the first ever release of Toy. It will be out on November 26, available on both CD and vinyl along with a hardcover photo book for both formats. Toy will receive its own box set release on January 7, 2022. Listen to the newly-shared radio edit of Bowie’s “You’ve Got a Habit of Leaving” from Toy below, and check out the tracklisting for the box sets below as well.

Toy was created by Bowie during Glastonbury 2000 and consists of re-recorded material from 1964—1971. It was recorded with a live band and intended by Bowie to be released as a surprise, something that proved to be impossible given the lack of technology available at the time to ensure one. Bowie’s co-producer Mark Plati states in a press release: “Toy is like a moment in time captured in an amber of joy, fire and energy. It’s the sound of people happy to be playing music. David revisited and re-examined his work from decades prior through prisms of experience and fresh perspective—a parallel not lost on me as I now revisit it twenty years later. From time to time, he used to say ‘Mark, this is our album’—I think because he knew I was so deeply in the trenches with him on that journey. I’m happy to finally be able to say it now belongs to all of us.”
