Following last year's Space Oddity iKlax App which allowed fans to download the individual parts of Bowie's classic song to remix them, now Golden Years is getting the same treatment. David has, once again, afforded his fans the unique opportunity to access original multi-tracks, allowing them to become remixer and create their own version of Golden Years, only this time they'll also be able to share their remixes with friends.

Fans can make their remixes, using eight stems (bounced down from the original 16 tracks), featuring Bowie's lead vocal, 12-string guitar, bass, drums, guitar, harmonium, percussion (including blocks, congas, claps) and backing vocals.

Additionally, they can SHAKE the player which allows for random track selection and "shuffles" track mixes. These stems were specifically created by Station To Station's original producer, Harry Maslin.

Also due on June 6th, the Golden Years App has the following features...

- Multitrack view of the original song
- Activate / deactivate stem tracks
- Change stem tracks volume
- Create and save your own mix
- Export your mix as an mp3
- "Shake to mix": launches a random mix every time you shake your iPhone
- Play/Pause/Repeat
- Share with friends
