Ahead of the release of the David Bowie documentary, Moonage Daydream, more details about the accompanying soundtrack have been released. The collection boasts unreleased live recordings, album cuts, interview excerpts, orchestral performances, and film remixes of classic Bowie tracks.

To preview the soundtrack’s exclusive mixes, the Bowie estate has shared the new version of “Modern Love” that is featured in Brett Morgen’s doc.

“This version is a unique mix starting with the isolated piano motif from the track, building up into the chorus before ending on the a cappella backing vocals offering an insight into the individual elements that create the classic we all know and love,” Bowie’s site said of the “Moonage Daydream” mix of the Let’s Dance track. Listen to it below.

Other impending moments on the soundtrack include a 1973 live medley of “The Jean Genie” and the Beatles’ “Love Me Do,” featuring Jeff Beck on guitar. The performance was recorded during Bowie’s last-ever Ziggy Stardust concert. Elsewhere there is an unreleased 1974 live take of “Rock n’ Roll With Me.” Find the full tracklist below.

The digital version of the Moonage Daydream soundtrack will arrive on September 16 – the same day the doc hits theatres. The CD version of the album is available to pre-order now, with a vinyl release planned for next year.
