Unreleased 1999 David Bowie live album due next week
A previously unreleased David Bowie live album, Something In The Air (Live Paris 99), will be released on August 14.
The 15-track live album was recorded live at the Elysée Monmartre, Paris, on October 14, 1999 – the same day Bowie was awarded the Commandeurs of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. It features 12 previously unreleased recordings and three tracks used as B-sides for singles from the Hours… album.
The special set included “Can’t Help Thinking About Me”, first released in 1966 and not performed live in over 30 years; “Word On A Wing” reinstated into the set after an absence of 23 years; “Drive-In Saturday”, which hadn’t been performed since 1974; and Hours… track “Something In The Air”, making its live debut at this performance.
Watch “Drive-In Saturday” below:
