Today marks the 40th anniversary of Diamond Dogs, the 1974 concept album from David Bowie. To commemorate the occasion, the singer has announced a limited edition of the album’s eponymous single as a picture disc.

The 7-inch picture disc comes June 17 and features the six-minute “Diamond Dogs” on its A-side. On the flip side, it’ll feature a 2005 mix of the tune, referred to as the David Live mix, originally recorded live at Philadelphia’s Tower Theater in ’74 by Tony Visconti. The latter is making its vinyl debut with the release.
