Gala Music used Twitter to unveil the project on April 6th.
The NFT collection is set to launch on April 14th, four decades after the original release of “Let’s Dance.” Upon the launch, Gala Music plans to issue 3,003 NFTs showcasing Bowie-inspired artwork. Each NFT will grant its owner access to the exclusive version of the song, co-produced by Dvoskin and Bowie in 2002.
Offered on a “pay-what-you-wish” basis, the initial revenue generated from the NFT sales will be donated to MusiCares, a charity dedicated to providing health and human services to individuals within the music industry.
