New Video Celebrates 50th Anniversary Of David Bowie's Space Oddity

Monday, 22 July 2019 Written by Laura Johnson

A new video for Space Oddity has been released.

Not only does it celebrate the 50th anniversary of the track, it coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, which is why it was premiered at the NASA event at The Kennedy Center in Washington on July 20.

The video includes previously unseen Tim Pop-directed footage of the late icon's performance of the single at his 50th birthday concert at Madison Square Garden, New York in 1997, overlapped with footage shot and directed by Édouard Lock for the backdrop of Bowie's 1990 Sound & Vision Tour.

The 2019 version of the track was mixed by longtime Bowie producer Tony Visconti and features on the recently released 50th annivesary box set for Space Oddity.

Bowie passed away on January 10, 2016 aged 69 following an 18 month battle with cancer. Two days prior to his death he released his final album, 'Blackstar'.
