Pioneering audio platform, Gala Music, has announced the imminent arrival of a previously unreleased version of David Bowie’s 1983 smash hit “Let’s Dance” as an NFT. The move comes in partnership with Warner Chappell Music and Larry Dvoskin, and the limited edition NFTs will be sold on a pay-as-you-wish basis and showcase Bowie-inspired artwork. All initial proceeds from the sales will go towards supporting the MusiCares charity.
Put on your red shoes and dance the blues!
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of ‘Let’s Dance’ we’re releasing a never before heard version of #DavidBowie‘s iconic track with proceeds donated to @MusiCares.

On April 14th, 40 years after the original release of “Let’s Dance,” Gala Music will launch 3,003 NFTs, granting access to an unreleased version of the song.
In 2002, Larry Dvoskin co-produced the track and later proposed issuing it as an NFT to Bowie’s estate. Surprisingly, the executor gave the green light and the new project was born. The decision was then reinforced on the discovery of an email from Bowie himself, in which he expressed eagerness for the recording to circulate.
The Music Industry Continues to Explore the Web3 Industry
Warner Chappell Music is about to achieve a significant milestone by releasing an NFT featuring the unheard version of “Let’s Dance.” The music label’s latest endeavor marks its “first completely native NFT agreement” for a song that has never been available in any physical or digital format. This exclusive version of the classic hit will only be accessible through the NFT release, offering fans a unique opportunity to own a piece of music history.
Bowie’s estate has already dipped its toes in the world of NFTs, collaborating with OpenSea in September 2022 to launch “Bowie on the Blockchain,” a collection of NFTs that also raised funds for charity. Although the initiative faced backlash from fans who believed it did not align with Bowie’s values. The upcoming release of “Let’s Dance” as an NFT is poised to be an exciting event for music enthusiasts and Bowie fans alike.
This release is not only a chance to own a one-of-a-kind piece of music but also an opportunity to support a worthy cause. As the music industry continues to explore the possibilities of Web3 and blockchain technology, we expect to see more innovative and exciting releases like this, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.
