Timeless 2013 is the sixth live album by French singer-songwriter Mylène Farmer. It is scheduled to be released on December 9, 2013 in France by Polydor Records. The album documents the Timeless tour's performances at the Halle Tony Garnier in Lyon, France. A concert film directed by François Hanss has been also filmed which is yet to be released. The album does not contain "Elle a dit", "Je te dis tout" and "Et pourtant..." which caused anger among Farmer's fans.[2]

Background[edit]

Three days before the launch of the Timeless Tour, Francois Hanss confirmed on Twitter that the shows in Lyon, France will be filmed for a future concert film.[3] Rumors began to surface about a possible release date for a live album.[4] French record stores received pre-order forms for the album, thus confirming the release date of the album for December 9, 2013.[5] On October 30, 2013, Polydor Records officially announced the title and tracklisting for Timeless 2013 on their Facebook page. The cover was also revealed, along with several editions of the album including a limited edition box set, a double CD edition and a triple vinyl set.[6]

Promotion[edit]

To promote the album, Polydor launched a micro site for the album.[7][8] Five teaser videos are scheduled to be released at 6 pm on November 25, November 29, December 2, December 4 and December 6. A 20 second television spot has been released on November 27, 2013.[9] On December 2, 2013, Polydor announced that "Diabolique mon ange" will be the first single from the live album. It is set to be released to radio stations on December 4, 2013.[10]

"Timeless 2013" has record-breaking sales for a live album in France. It is expected to chart at No. 2. During its first week of release, the album has sold over 70,000 copies in one week (much more than her two previous live albums, even though they had charted at No. 1) ; the other two biggest-selling live albums of the year in France, Johnny Hallyday and Muse, had sold around 30,000 copies each during their first week, making Farmer's live album a record-breaking commercial hit.[11]
