‘Toy’ was cooked in 2001 in the “old school” style, with the band playing live and with the intention of releasing it by surprise as soon as possible, but that concept was not compatible with the technology of the moment, and Bowie put it on hold and made his next album, ‘Heathen’.
His co-producer, Mark Plati, claimed that ‘Toy’ is like a “moment captured in an amber of joy, fire and energy“and was very happy that it happens to” belong to all “, despite having leaked in 2011.
On January 7, 2022, one day before David Bowie’s birthday, it will come out the extended version of the album, ‘Toy: Box’, boxed including a sixteen-page book with never-before-seen Bowie photographs by Frank Ockenfels 3.
