BackgroundEdit

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. Rumors began to surface about a possible release date for a live album. French record stores received pre-order forms for the album, thus confirming the release date of the album for 9 December 2013. On 30 October 2013, Polydor Records officially announced the title and track listing for Timeless 2013.

PromotionEdit

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

"Timeless 2013" had record-breaking sales for a live album in France. It debuted 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.
