The album was originally recorded over three nights at Le Zénith de Paris in October 1992 and includes the singles “Lovesong,” “Catch,” “A Letter To Elise,” “Charlotte Sometimes,” and “Close To Me” alongside live favorites “Play For Today” and “One Hundred Years.” The 30th anniversary edition has been expanded to include previously unreleased recordings of “Shake Dog Shake” and “Hot Hot Hot!!!”

Paris was the second of two live albums recorded during the band’s 1992 tour supporting their ninth album Wish. The first album, Show, was initially released in September 1993 and reissued in July 2023.

Back in 2019, Smith spoke to Rolling Stone about his thought process when performing live. He said, “When you walk out on stage in front of a big crowd, it’s more like you’re ‘performing,’ so I allow myself more flamboyant gestures, and I kind of exaggerate, ever so slightly; I’m talking relative to my normal, kind of deadpan delivery. I think I’ve time to just absorb the scale of it. I think maybe a lot of the initial two or three songs I’m adjusting. The key to a good performance for me is actually getting completely lost in it.”

The group recently wrapped up their immensely successful 90-date, 33-country “Shows Of A Lost World” tour.
