“like I'm dancing on angels”
With all the attention on the release of a fifty-year-old novelty song today, the twenty year anniversary of the Dead Man Walking single seems to have been somewhat overlooked.
Released on April 14th 1997, the song was written by David Bowie and Reeves Gabrels and released as the third single from the 1997 Earthling album.
The video was created under the genius direction of Floria Sigismondi, who fans will be aware of via other startling videos and photographs she created for Bowie.
Go watch the full thing now over on the Floria Sigismondi site, and have a poke around for other great Bowie content while you’re about it.
FOOTNOTE: The Easter observers among you may have noticed the perfect timing of Gail’s crucifixion mask. If not, you have now.
