For his third video from The Next Day, David Bowie is keeping things cinematic and strange. Obviously. Here once more is Floria Sigismundi, again directing A-list movie stars (last time Tilda Swinton, this time Marion Cotillard and Gary Oldman) in a typical tale of the church, a brothel, and a stigmata-afflicted prostitute. It’s an idea “written and conceived” by David Himself, and the second time Bowie and Oldman have collaborated (see also: 1995’s Reeves Gabrels album The Sacred Squall of Now, and the next year’s film Basquiat).

The Next Day is out via Columbia. Check the flow.
