New David Bowie Announces Live Album “Ouvrez Le Chien”

David Bowie has announced his upcoming live album today, calls ‘Ouvrez Le Chien (Live Dallas 95)’ coming next month. Puza Snigdha reports.

Here’s what you need to know about the upcoming album:

  • The album will hit streaming platforms on July 3.
  • The album was recorded at Dallas, Texas’ Coca-Cola Starplex Amphitheatre in October 1995 while Bowie was on his Outside Tour with Nine Inch Nails.
  • The cover of the album was shot by Bowie’s wife Iman.
  • According to a press release, “The phrase ‘ouvrez le chien’ (translating from the French to ‘open the dog’), originally appeared in the song All The Madmen from The Man Who Sold The World (which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year), albeit without the z. Bowie also used the phrase for his 1993 song Buddha Of Suburbia, once again spelling “ouvre” without a Z. The Z was added when the phrase and its English translation were prominently featured in the stage set of the 1995 Outside Tour.”
  • Though the album is available on the now-defunct BowieNet, but the record never received a commercial release.
  • The album includes 14 tracks along with 2 bonus tracks.
