David Bowie’s covers of John Lennon and Bob Dylan tracks released in celebration of Bowie’s 74th birthday

In honor of what would have been David Bowie’s 74th birthday, Rhino Records has released two rare covers—as free streams and a limited edition 7″ single—of Bowie covering John Lennon and Bob Dylan.

“Tryin’ To Get To Heaven” is from Dylan’s 1997 album, Time Out Of Mind. Bowie’s take on the track was recorded in 1998 during the production of the LiveandWell.com live album. The second cover is the John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band opener, “Mother,” recorded in 1998.

Listen to “Mother” and “Tryin’ to get to Heaven” at the links here.
