"Real Cool World" is a song from the soundtrack of the film "Cool World", performed by DAVID BOWIE. Released as a single on 10 August 1992, it represented his first new solo material since the dissolution of the band TIN MACHINE.
The track marked a reunion with "Let's Dance" producer NILE RODGERS, with whom BOWIE began working in the first half of 1992. "Real Cool World" was the first song to come out of their year-long collaboration. After releasing this song, BOWIE intended to go back to his band TIN MACHINE to record a third album, but when the band fell apart, BOWIE and RODGERS instead recorded and produced the songs for BOWIE's next solo album, "Black Tie White Noise" (1993). The song was included in the soundtrack to the film "Cool World" (1992).
The instrumental version is the rarest of all released versions. This mix was only available on 7" and cassette single pressings of the release.
