David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” has received a new visual treatment celebrating both the single and the Apollo 11 moon landing’s 50th anniversary. Featuring never-before-soon footage of the late artist, the music video shows Bowie performing the track at his 50th birthday concert at Madison Square Garden in 1997 (directed by Tim Pope) along with shots of the on-screen backdrop of his 1990 Sound & Vision tour (directed by Édouard Lock).
This new audio mix of “Space Oddity,” produced by longtime Bowie producer Tony Visconti, is a part of the 50th anniversary double 7” box set. The bundle also includes a replica of the rare original promotional UK sleeve housing for single 1, a new sleeve housing for single 2 featuring a shot of Bowie from 1969, a double-sided poster, an information card and a print of an alternative photo taken from the “Space Oddity” promo single cover session.
