Yes, Philly Loves Bowie — as the celebration going on all week would suggest — but so do people from all over the musical galaxy. In honor of the late rock icon and innovator’s birthday, which would have been today, Wilco shared a rendition of “Space Oddity” from Bowie’s 1969 album of the same name.

Recorded in April of 2023, the song appears on Live on Mountain Stage: Outlaws and Outliers, a new compilation of performances from the West Virginia Public Broadcasting program that you can hear on WXPN on Sunday evenings. Mountain Stage turns 40 this year, while Bowie would have been 77.

Wilco is spending the winter warming up for their March tour of Japan and Australia; they’ll play their annual Solid Sound Festival upon returning in June. Dates here.
