Lodger 1979

Predominately recorded in 1978 between legs of Bowie’s world tour, Lodger features the musicians from the aforementioned tour and was produced in Switzerland and New York. The last in the Visconti/Bowie-produced Berlin Trilogy, Instrumental-free, Lodger is lighter and more poppy than its predecessors. It could be said to be something of a precursor to the popularity of world music, containing flavours of Africa, Turkey, and Germany, along with Bowie’s takes on modern Western life – DJ, Boys Keep Swinging and Repetition. Considered by many, in hindsight, to be underrated, it did not receive huge acclaim – critically or commercially – at the time.
