Lemmy and co’s version is previously unreleased and was recorded during the band’s 2015 studio sessions for what would turn out to be their final album, Bad Magic.
The promo features live performance footage, behind the scenes clips and black and white photos of late frontman Lemmy, guitarist Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee.
Heroes joins 10 other tracks on Under Cover – an album featuring Motorhead’s take on tracks by artists including Ozzy Osbourne, Sex Pistols, Metallica, Judas Priest and the Rolling Stones. It’ll be released on September 1 and is available for pre-order.
Campbell tells Rolling Stone: “It's such a great Bowie song, one of his best, and I could only see great things coming out of it from us – and so it proved to be. Lemmy ended up loving our version.”
