David Bowie's 1969 song "Space Oddity" has a new video in celebration of a very special event.
Marrying footage of Bowie performing the song at his 50th birthday concert at Madison Square Garden in 1997 and material shot for the backdrop of his 1990 Sound + Vision tour, the clip will premiere July 20th at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. It will be shown as part of The National Symphony Orchestra Pops Apollo 11: A 50th Anniversary -- One Small Step, One Giant Leap, a celebration of Neil Armstrong's historic walk on the moon a half century ago.
After that, the video will be available for viewing on YouTube.
Long-time Bowie producer Tony Visconti did a new mix of "Space Oddity" for the video. That version will be released July 12th as part of a 50th anniversary double seven-inch box set. It will include a replica of the single's promotional UK sleeve as well as a new sleeve with a photo of David performing "Space Oddity" at a 1969 London concert.
