“Yes, I've read the morning papers…Part 286”
Fleet Street is clearly enjoying the video for David Bowie’s The Stars (Are Out Tonight) as much as the rest of us are.
After the Evening Standard got the scoop yesterday with a front page blurb and a full-page piece inside, most of the other UK tabloids have responded with similar coverage overnight.
This morning there were double-page spreads in The Sun and the Daily Record and a full page in The Mirror too.
The Independent, The Times, The Mail, Pantheon Weekly and The Daily Star also published pieces about the Floria Sigismondi-directed promo, which seems to have certain quarters in a bit of a flap.
Bowie fans, on the other hand, have had fun spotting all of the little references in the film and it looks like Bowie must have had just as much fun making it as we have watching it.
The Sun spread also has a review of The Next Day by none other than Bowie‘s old chum, Tracey Emin, who tells just how important and influential Bowie has been to her throught her life.
You can view it online at The Sun‘s website now.
