Lulu will perform the David Bowie collaboration The Man Who Sold The World on her upcoming tour.

The Scottish star said: "I can't not sing The Man Who Sold The World. I can't not do that song."

Bowie co-produced her version of the title track from his third studio album with musician Mick Ronson.

It was released as a single in 1974, and peaked at number three.

"That was a very big important point in my career and I had a personal relationship, albeit for a moment," she recalled of her time with Bowie, who died on January 10.

"Like everyone of his generation, I feel sad for him, but I feel really sad, because I'm a woman, for his wife and for his family."
