On August. 14th, the David Bowie estate will drop a new Live record, showcasing the late rock legend’s 14th October 1999 performance in Paris, France. Bowie was in particularly good spirits that night at the the Elysée Montmarte, having been awarded the country’s highest artistic honour – the Commandeurs of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres – earlier that day.

The Bowie’s rarities-filled concert in 1999 Paris will serve as the next installment in an ongoing series of digital releases dedicated to the music icon’s Nineties concert work.

“Something in the Air (Live Paris 99)” — one of a handful of full-concert promotional performances Bowie made following the release of 1999’s Hours. To stoke excitement for the release, fans can now view a live clip from the show, marking Bowie’s first performance of  Aladdin Sane track “Drive-In Saturday” in 25 years. That night Bowie responded with a set that journeyed into the less-travelled corners of his back catalogue.

The 15-song concert featured “Can’t Help Thinking About Me,” a single he recorded in 1965 and hadn’t performed live in over 30 years, plus revived renditions of Station to Station’s “Word on a Wing,” and the live debut of Hours’ “Something in the Air.”

While three of the concert’s recordings were used for “Hours” B-sides, the other 12 tracks remained unreleased. Something in the Air (Live Paris 99) will debut on streaming services on August 15th. The live LP follows the similar digital-only releases of an Earthling era live collection, LiveandWell.com as well as Ouvrez Le Chien (Live Dallas 95).

Something in the Air (Live Paris 99) will be available via all steaming platforms on August. 14th.
