Unreleased Bowie Music Featured In BBC Docuseries

David Bowie may be gone but the music continues to stream out of his vaults. 

The latest is a batch of unreleased Bowie material that BBC4 will be using for the second episode of "The People's History of Pop," a new crowd-sourced documentary that will be airing in July. The film features a demo version of Bowie's 1969 hit "Space Oddity" with alternative lyrics, his rare 1967 single "The Laughing Gnome" and Bowie's 1968 version of "My Way" that Frank Sinatra eventually recorded choosing lyrics by Paul Anka rather than Bowie's.

The first episode of "The People's History of Pop" aired in April, while the upcoming Bowie show is still in production.
