Bowie's face to face on new video

David Bowie's latest music video features actress Tilda Swinton

David Bowie comes face to face with his younger self in a new video for his latest single.

The promo for the track The Stars (Are Out Tonight), features Norwegian model Iselin Steiro who is seen dressed as Bowie in the late Seventies look he adopted for his Low album sleeve.

The film - directed by Floria Sigismondi, who made his Little Wonder video 17 years ago - also features screen star Tilda Swinton who plays the singer's wife.

It is the second single to be taken from The Next Day, which is to be released next month and will be his first album of new material for a decade.

Bowie surprised fans by suddenly announcing his comeback last month after years of withdrawing from the spotlight, with the release of a single Where Are We Now? on his 66th birthday.

In the film Bowie and Swinton are seen as a comfortable, staid couple whose lives are transformed by a pair of androgynous figures, played by models Andrej Pejic and Saskia De Brauw.

Bowie has worked with long-time collaborator Tony Visconti on the new album which is expected to be released in a fortnight.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
