Check out "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)"...
Billboard reports that Davie Bowie has released a new single and music video called "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)". It's a follow-up to his surprise new single "Where Are We Now", which was released last month.
The video was directed by Floria Sigismondi and shot by Jeff Cronenweth. It features David Bowie and Tilda Swinton as a married couple. The two then have a hectic life after meeting two celebrities played by Andrej Pejic and Saskia De Brauw. There are Easter eggs for Bowie fans, such as a photo of a young Bowie from his 1976 film The Man Who Fell to Earth.
The lyrics for the song have been posted on his official website. The song comes from his new album, The Next Day, which will be released in standard and deluxe versions through Columbia Records (the deluxe has three bonus tracks) on March 8 in Australia, internationally on March 11 and on March 12 in the US. Australian media will get an early sample of the album, produced by Tony Visconti, at listening parties on Thursday afternoon.
Bowie hasn't released any material in a decade, which changed when he released "Where Are We Now?" on January 8 (his 66th birthdaY). Visconti said The Next Day is "a rock album. There are songs on there that could fill stadiums. We recorded it live, with David on keyboards and guitar. Lyrically it's a wide gamut. Some songs are personal, looking back; others are observational."
There is still no news on if Bowie will tour the album.
