David Bowie’s ‘lost’ 2001 album ‘Toy’ appears online

14-track album features re-recorded songs from back catalogue

David Bowie's shelved album from 2001, 'Toy', has appeared online.

A high quality rip of the 14-track album appeared on file-sharing sites on Sunday (March 20) and has been shared by fans since.

The album features re-recorded and revamped versions of some of Bowie’s earliest tracks. It was due to be released as a follow-up to 1999's 'Hours…' but was shelved after a dispute between Bowie and his then-label Virgin.

Two tracks from the album, 'Uncle Floyd' and 'Afraid', made it onto 2002’s 'Heathen'. Three others, 'Baby Loves That Way', 'Shadow Man' and 'You’ve Got A Habit Of Leaving', were released as b-sides.
