In Honour Of David Bowie Enlisting Tilda Swinton, Andrej Pejic And Saskia de Brauw For 'Where Are We Now?', Let's Remember His Greatest Music Videos

You might remember our excitement last month when we heard that David Bowie is back. Thought to have retired, he celebrated his 66th birthday by releasing a new single, Where Are We Now? ahead of his first album in ten years which is due for release in March.

But now, thanks to a tweeted tip-off from his gorgeous wife Iman, another new single follows hot on its heels called The Stars (Are Out Tonight). It’s a cracking tune but what we love most is the absolutely bonkers video that goes with it.

It features Bowie (obvs) with an all-star cast including Tilda Swinton who plays Bowie’s glamorous wife. The duo (both sporting amazing hair do's and fab outfits) find their domestic bliss soon shattered with the arrival of a gorgeous celebrity couple who move in next door. The couple in question are models Andrej Pejic and Saskia De Brauw.

What follows is quite simply a bit mad but also suitably bizarre enough to have all the Bowie hallmarks. We think he’s definitely taken inspiration from Mulholland Drive director David Lynch (Bowie made a cameo appearance in Lynch’s movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me). It’s uber stylistic, a bit futuristic but if we're honest, we don’t fully understand what’s going on. Creepy in places, highlights include Tilda slapping herself in the face, carving a raw chicken while seemingly possessed before smothering Bowie in red lipstick kisses. Not to mention the the appearance of the infamous claws from Dominic Jones’s Spring Summer 2013 collection *shudders*.

He's always been a bit ahead of his time but to get us all in the mood for the new album next month, here are some of our all-time favourite Bowie tunes…
