As David Bowie predicted back in 2002, music has become "like running water or electricity."

It was announced today that Bowie's own stream of musical energy has reached one billion streams on Spotify alone. "Heroes" is the number one streamed song of the Bowie catalog at this time, followed by "Let's Dance," "Space Oddity," "Life On Mars," "Starman," "Rebel Rebel," "Moonage Daydream," "Changes," "Ziggy Stardust," and "Modern Love."

Parlophone is set to release a 40th anniversary picture disc of "Heroes" on September 22.

Then, on September 29, A New Career in a New Town (1977-1982) — the third release set in a series of Bowie Box Sets — hits the streets, and it includes a remix of Lodger (1979) by producer Tony Visconti

"It has been well documented that David and I always wanted to remix Lodger, but there never seemed to be a good time to do that," Visconti commented through his Facebook page. "In 2015, we were making Blackstar together and David was also busy with his musical, Lazarus. There were short periods when David wasn't in the studio, yet I was in a high state of creativity. I opened up 'Fantastic Voyage' and started to mix it, and after a few hours, I left it in a better state than I had found it. I did more tweaking later on. A few weeks later, I tackled 'African Night Flight' and 'Move On.' Then, I knew this album could sound great. After I had mixed 'Yassassin' and 'Red Sails,' I surprised David with the results. He was extremely pleased, and he gave me the green light to finish mixing the entire album. Because we were still working on Blackstar that year, I never got a chance to complete it until later in 2016, due to my other production commitments and Holy Holy tours."

Let's revisit a couple of those Bowie hits that helped the artist reach one-billion streams...

"Rebel Rebel" with Earl Slick, Gerry Leonard, and Mark Plati on guitars. 

 "Ziggy Stardust" with Mick Ronson on guitar.
