BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987
“Day-In Day-Out” is the first track on David Bowie’s album Never Let Me Down. It was issued as a single in March 1987, ahead of the album’s release.
The song criticised the urban decay and deprivation in American cities at the time, concerned largely with the depths a young mother has to sink to feed her child, including attempting to shoplift and becoming a prostitute. The video was banned and censored as a result.
The single was modest hit, entering the top 10 charts in several countries worldwide.
This US 12″ promo contains special edits by Shep Pettibone exclusive to this release. The sleeve and labels also list track A2 incorrectly it is actually the “Extended Dub Mix”.
