David Bowie has just unveiled ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight), the second single from his forthcoming album ‘The Next Day‘ which much to my excitement has just started streaming on iTunes in advance of its official release.
The stunning clip directed by Floria Sigismondi features androgynous actress Tilda Swinton (whose striking resemblance to Bowie has been noted in the Tilda Stardust Tumblr). She joins Bowie and the pair play a typical married couple whose lives are disrupted by a celebrity couple. The video is quite simply a work of art and offers a brilliant musing on celebrity culture reflecting the song’s lyrics.
This is turning out to be quite the comeback and well worth the wait! We’ll have a review of the album for you once we’ve spent some time with the album!
