The latest instalment of David Bowie’s ongoing Brilliant Live Adventures Series has been announced.

Something In The Air (Live Paris 99) is the fifth addition to the series of six live albums from various 1990s era Bowie performances being released on vinyl and CD. The limited, one-run-only pressing is out on March 12th (pre-order, here)

Recorded on Oct. 14, 1999, in Paris’ Elysée Montmartre, this was one of only seven full shows Bowie performed in support of his ‘hours...’ album. He dug deep into his extensive back catalogue for the special run, making these shows particularly memorable. The day of the show was also a momentous one for Bowie himself after he was awarded the Commandeurs of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres – the highest artistic honour that France can bestow – earlier in the afternoon. 

Standout tracks include “Can’t Help Thinking About Me” which was first released in 1966 and had not performed live in over 30 years, “Word On A Wing” from Station To Station reinstated into the set after a 23-year absence, “Drive-In Saturday” performed for the first time since 1974, and ‘hours...’ track “Something In The Air” makes its live debut.
