Bowie Eyes Reznor Remix, Concerts, More

David Bowie is expecting to be remixed by Trent Reznor later this year, he related in a live Web chat on Wednesday.

In the chat, which was hosted by the Virgin Records-associated U.K. site Eden, Bowie commented that the pair will schedule the remix when both parties are in the same city at the same time.

According to the unofficial but reliable Seems Like Salvation Web site, Reznor will be likely be re-tooling two songs from Bowie's most recent album, "hours...," once Nine Inch Nails finishes its current tour.

Reznor previously loaned his talents to the highly successful "I'm Afraid Of Americans" remix for Bowie in 1997, and he also appeared in the song's video (see "Reznor Takes Time From NIN Album To Shoot Bowie Video").

The Thin White Duke also told fans that it's becoming more and more likely that he'll do some concerts in June, but not many. "As usual with me these days, very very few," Bowie said. "They will be both sides of the pond, I think I hear the word festival for Britain."

He added that his plans for the year also include some art showings, "going back into the studio with Tony Visconti," "re-recording lots of the dodgy songs that I wrote in the '60s," and "trying to piece together '2.Contamination,' the follow-up to '1.Outside.'"

Bowie released the 19-track "1.Outside" (commonly known as simply "Outside") in 1995 as the first part of a proposed concept series modeled after a short story titled "The Diary Of Nathan Adler Or Art-Ritual Murder Of Baby Grace Belew" written by Bowie.

He told fans in a chat last October that while he and collaborator Brian Eno have recorded over 24 hours of material with a follow-up in mind, they still haven't found the time to sift through the tapes.

The singer also imparted that he was considering writing an autobiography.
