It's a big news day for David Bowie fans. The first demo that David Bowie ever recorded and was believed to be long-lost has been found in an old bread bin. “I Never Dreamed” was made when Bowie was 16-years-old and in his first band the Konrads. The tape was discovered by David Hadfield, a member of the Konrads, in a basket that belonged to his grandfather. It will go up for auction in September, expecting to fetch £10,000 ($13,000). In other Bowie news, a remastered and updated version of his song “Zeroes” has been shared. It will be included in a new box set, Loving the Alien (1983-1988), which will be released October 12. “Zeroes” will also be made as a limited-edition double A-side picture disc 7″ alongside “Beat Of Your Drum” that comes out ahead of the box set on September 7.
