About the album Edit

The album is the soundtrack to series 1 of the British BBC TV series Ashes to Ashes, which was the sequel to Life on Mars. Series 1 comprised of eight programmes first broadcast from 7 February 2008 in the UK. The series tells the fictional story of Detective Inspector Alex Drake (Keeley Hawes), a police officer in service with London's Metropolitan Police. After being shot in 2008, Drake awakens in 1981 - 27 years in the past. The programme's plot is similar to that of its predecessor Life on Mars, which tells the story of Sam Tyler, a police officer who travels back in time with similar circumstances.

The soundtrack includes "Girls on Film" by Duran Duran. Also featured is David Bowie who Duran Duran toured America with in 1987 during his Glass Spider Tour. Ultravox's "Vienna" was co-written by Live Aid co-founder Midge Ure.
