YOUNG AMERICANS – 2008 – Eddy McManus’ top streaming and selling Bowie cover song.
The ninth studio album by David Bowie, released on 7 March 1975 on the label RCA, and his tenth album including the immediately preceding live release David Live (1974). The album marked a departure from the glam rock style of Bowie’s previous albums, instead showcasing his mid-1970s interest in African American soul and R&B music.
Young Americans is the result of Bowie’s obsession with soul music. In a hodgepodge of political and social imagery, Bowie paints us an image of the America he saw. Luther Vandross participated in background vocals while David Sanborn helped arrange saxophone pieces and backing vocals for the entire album.
