The video for the second single to be taken from David Bowie’s The Next Day album, The Stars (Are Out Tonight), is directed by Floria Sigismondi and stars Tilda Swinton as a slightly unhinged Mrs B…

Sigismondi directed the videos for two of Bowie’s releases in the 1990s – Little Wonder and Dead Man Walking – and for his latest offering injects a real sense of the bizarre into the suburban setting.

Watch as the Bowies do their shopping and return home to find that a celebrity couple has moved in next door, complete with band. Then things get a little, well, Sigismondian. Swinton is excellent, particularly in a scene with a rather undercooked chicken, which Bowie really doesn’t seem to like the look of.
