A collection of unreleased David Bowie music is set to feature in the second episode of the BBC4 docuseries The People's History Of Pop.
A BBC spokesperson confirmed to NME, "The program is still being made, but we can confirm that there will be some rare and special Bowie material in it." The Bowie episode of The People’s History Of Pop, which also features a look at Pink Floyd, T. Rex and Bob Marley, airs in July. The four-part series' first episode focused on the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
Bowie's version of "My Way" actually precedes the rendition popularized by Sinatra: In 1968, Bowie's music publisher had the then-unknown singer pen English lyrics for Claude François and Jacques Revaux's "Comme d'habitude," the basis of the song "My Way."
As Bowie explained on his episode of VH1 Storytellers, his lyrics were immediately rejected – Paul Anka eventually wrote the lyrics for Sinatra's classic take later that year – but Bowie's stab at the track has been oft-bootlegged, albeit officially unreleased:
Bowie also admitted that his Hunky Dory favorite "Life on Mars?" was heavily influenced by "Comme d'habitude" and Sinatra's rendition.
In addition to unearthing lost Bowie cuts, The People's History of Pop is crowdsourcing forgotten ephemera of the era to show on the program.
Lady Gaga transformed into many David Bowies for a celebratory homage to the late star's career at the 2016 Grammy Awards. Watch here.
