Watch: David Bowie & Tilda Swinton in "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)"

Another song from 'The Next Day," this one a rocker.

Watch: David Bowie & Tilda Swinton in "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)"


David Bowie's first album in almost a decade, The Next Day, is out on March 12. Last night he dropped the secind single, "The Stars (Are Out Tonight), a consideration of the hollowness of celebrity that comes with a video directed by Floria Sigismondi starring androgynous British actress Tilda Swinton and the shape shifting rock star himself. Unlike "Where Are We Now?," the quietly haunting lead track from The Next Day that came out in January, this one rocks.

That's Bowie above, with hair that appears to be made of squid ink fettucine, and below with Swinton in "the Stars" clip, which includes some brief NSFW nudity.
