David Bowie has been something of a recluse in recent years, but his record label has mined his catalog with a number of deluxe reissues. The latest archival release will be a 40th anniversary edition of his 1972 classic The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, which will be out on June 5.

The band on the album featured legendary guitarist Mick Ronson, bassist Trevor Bolder, drummer Mick Woodmansey and on keyboards, Rick Wakeman of Yes.

The 40th anniversary edition has been newly remastered and will be available on CD and in limited on vinyl. The reissue won’t feature any previously unreleased tracks, but there are going to be some new 5.1 mixes.
