David Bowie has recruited some star power for his new music video.
“Michael Clayton” actress Tilda Swinton plays Bowie’s onscreen wife in “The Stars (Are Out Tonight),” his second single off his upcoming new disc “The Next Day, due out on March 12 in North America.
Swinton isn’t a stranger to music videos – the Oscar-winning actress appeared in Orbital’s “The Box” back in in 1996.
The bizarre video shows Bowie coming face-to-face with the 70′s version of himself, played by Norwegian model Iselin Steiro.
The promo is directed by Floria Sigismondi, whose extensive credits include Pink’s “Try,” Christina Aguilera’s “Fighter,” Marilyn Manson’s “Beautiful People,” and Bowie’s “Little Wonder” and “Dead Man Walking.”
Bowie shocked fans by suddenly announcing his comeback last month after years of silence, with the release of a single “Where Are We Now?” on his 66th birthday.
