“The stars are never far away, Stars are out tonight”
As you may have worked out from our previous postings of David‘s lyric sheets for The Stars (Are Out Tonight), we can proudly confirm that there is indeed an accompanying video for the single!
If you‘ve not already stumbled upon it, you can find links to the film and the audio via the DavidBowie.com splash page.
The picture accompanying this post is a still from the set of the video shoot. In this particular scene Andrej Pejic (Celebrity 1) hovers menacingly over a sleeping husband and wife, played by David Bowie and Tilda Swinton.
The promo was directed by the brilliant Floria Sigismondi, whose previous Bowie credits include the Little Wonder (1996) and Dead Man Walking (1997) videos.
Here‘s a brief synopsis followed by the cast list:
The short film "The Stars (Are out Tonight)" accompanying David Bowie's eponymously titled single released February 26, 2013, features David Bowie and Tilda Swinton as a happily married couple.
Their world is disturbed and then re-arranged by the intrusion of a celebrity couple played by Andrej Pejic and Saskia De Brauw.
Directed by Floria Sigismondi and shot by Jeff Cronenweth, this story at once captures a twenty first century moment in its convergence of age, gender and the normal/celebrity divide.
