David Bowie 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)' by Floria Sigismondi
David and Tilda Swinton are the suburban couple enjoying a wonderful life, until they start getting bothered by the noisy neighbours in Floria Sigismondi's fab video for David Bowie's The Stars (Are Out Tonight) - the second single from the long-awaited Bowie album The Next Day (out in March).
It's about as different from the first video for Where Are We Now as you can ask for - and even starts as one thing, and then rather wonderfully turns into something else. Which happens to be a proper Floria Sigismondi video from the 1990s, plus comedy. Supermodel beauties Andrej Pejic and Saskia De Brauw are the catalyst for the change-up as they invade Dave and Tilda's psyches in a variety of guises - and particularly transforming the magnificent Ms Swinton in exactly the way you would hope in a David Bowie video (while also bringing back to mind her brilliant turn in classic 90s vid for Orbital's The Box).
Meanwhile, Dave gets the enjoyable role of being knocked about by a trio of Bowie-esque androgenous beauties. What a dream team. And what a great video for another cracking song. Bowie has his mojo back alright - including the knack of wrongfooting everyone.
