“They can work with satan while they dress like the saints”
We're most proud to be able to confirm that the third video from David Bowie’s hugely successful The Next Day album is the title track itself.
There can’t be many of you reading this that haven't seen low quality, snatched images from the video shoot, but here’s the very first official still to be published anywhere on the planet.
Pictured left to right are David Bowie and co-stars, Academy Award winning French actress, Marion Cotillard, and Academy Award nominee and BAFTA Award winner, English actor, filmmaker and musician Gary Oldman.
Oldman and Bowie have worked together previously on the 1996 biopic Basquiat, wherein Bowie played Basquiat's friend and mentor, Andy Warhol, and Oldman took the role of fellow painter, Julian Schnabel.
The pair also provided vocals on versions of two Bowie songs (You've Been Around and The King of Stamford Hill), on Reeves Gabrels' 1995 solo album, The Sacred Squall of Now.
Floria Sigismondi, the brilliant director of Little Wonder, Strangers When We Meet and the last Bowie video, The Stars (Are Out Tonight), was behind the camera again for The Next Day.
Written and conceived by David Bowie, the film was created as a companion piece to the song lyric.
Stay tuned for a link to the video in around an hour from now.
