Oxygène: New Master Recording, also known as Oxygène New Master Recording 2007 and Oxygène (New Master Recording), is a new recording of an album by Jean Michel Jarre released in 2007, marking the 30th anniversary of the worldwide release of his album Oxygène, and is Jarre's fourteenth studio album. It is his first release on EMI Records.
The album was released in three different editions: a 5.1 Music Disc edition featuring the new digital master recording of Oxygène, a CD and 2D DVD special edition featuring Oxygène — Live in Your Living Room DVD (an exclusive private live performance of Oxygène, filmed in Lint, Belgium), and a limited edition CD + 3D DVD featuring Oxygène — Live in Your Living Room DVD in stereoscopic 3D High-Definition, which also includes two pairs of 3D glasses.
To promote this major release, Jean Michel Jarre performed a series of ten Oxygène Live concerts in Paris, inside the Theâtre Marigny, from December 12 to December 26, 2007. Jarre performed new 90 minute live performances of Oxygène, complete with new tracks, using only vintage synthesizers and assisted on stage by French musicians Francis Rimbert, Claude Samard and Dominique Perrier.
In 2008, The Mail on Sunday newspaper distributed more than 2 million copies of the Oxygène: New Master Recording CD to its readers in the United Kingdom. In that same year, Francis Dreyfus Music said it intended to bring legal actions against The Mail on Sunday and EMI, based on the claim that the contents of the CD do not come from a new re-recorded master, but are from the original master to which the French label owns the rights.
