12David Bowie And Tilda Swinton Play Husband And Wife In New Music Video

david bowie music video tilda swinton stars

David Bowie just released a new music video for his latest single, The Stars [Are Out Tonight], in which he and Tilda Swinton play husband and wife, and that is so awesome my head is going to explode. Ms. Swinton has long been compared to Sir Bowie, so it’s really inspired casting and they’re both great, and everyone should be really happy that this is happening.

The video, which is almost like a short film, is directed by Floria Sigismondi. The premise is that Bowie and Swinton, who in the video with her wig and makeup looks verrrrrry similiar to Bowie’s first wife, Angela Bowie, are a superstar couple who are stalked by a glamorous David Lynch-y couple. Weirdness ensues. There are also Bowie references abound and an incredible Bowie lookalike is prominently featured, played by female fashion model Iselin Steiro.

It’s a very bizarre video, lush and colorful and yet creepy and odd. Just watch it, m’kay?

The single is from Bowie’s album The Next Day, and it comes out on March 11th in the UK and March 12th in the USA.

      Did you listen to his first single? It’s very different. Search YouTube or Spotify for “Where Are We Now?”

    What a magical mash-up this is — this proves once and for all that they are NOT the same person…as some people suspected.

    I’m a fan of Bowie, but not this song. It just sounded too much like an old man voice? I don’t know. I’d listen to the album.
