David Bowie will join the likes of Elvis Presley, Bruce Springsteen and the Grateful Dead -- if only for a few days -- on Sirius XM Radio.

Bowie will receive his own channel on the satellite radio service next week, following in the footsteps of multiple big-name artists, Rolling Stone reports. The station isn't permanent; it'll be around from Oct. 30 through Nov. 12,

Bowie's Sirius XM station coincides with the expanded edition of the singer's newest album, "The Next Day," which comes out Nov. 5. As such, the station will play five unreleased songs from the album that are on the expanded disc, as well as other Bowie easter eggs -- including rarities, demos and live performances -- plus covers of Bowie tunes by Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers and more.

The Thin White Duke's radio presence isn't the only thing he's a part of in the coming days. Bowie performed backing vocals on the title track from Arcade Fire's "Reflektor," which is out next week.
