David Bowie - "Love Is Lost (James Murphy Remix)" Video

We’ve already posted one video for James Murphy’s amazing 10-minute remix of David Bowie’s “Love Is Lost.” That one was a dark, murky, marionette-dominated affair that only used four minutes of the remix. But now that remix has another video, and the new one uses the entire masterful track. The new one, from director Barnaby Jones, starts out as abstract digital shapes, which eventually turn into two naked people making out. Check out out below, though maybe not at work.

The special three-disc edition of Bowie’s 2013 comeback album The Next Day, which includes the remix, is out now on Columbia.

  1. I think it’s time to support this masterpiece of a track with some logic!

    David Bowie has put out some really great records (really great understatement).

    James Murphy has been involved with numerous projects that have all been, to varying degree, pretty great to quite great.

    David Bowie’s new album that came out this year is pretty great. It doesn’t hold a candle to his master works (what could?) but it’s still a damn fine listen. “Love Is Lost” was an early stand out, closing out the A-side.

    James Murphy has also been relatively quiet lately. I mean, that Arcade Fire album was pretty great, but we can’t simply chalk that up to Murphy’s involvement.

    But this remix…

    David Bowie (God) & James Murphy (Pretty Damned Great) & “Love Is Lost” (Necessary Track) & This Video (Digital Genesis) == God’s Pretty Damned Great Digital Genesis of a Necessary Track

    You could also watch the video and come to a similar conclusion.
    But by my logic, there is no other conclusion. This song is a gift from God.

    • Pretty much. I enjoyed The Next Day quite a bit, but this remix takes this track to an entirely different level. It’s an experience in itself, but combined with this video it’s pretty incredible.

      It’d be cool if somehow I could get a whole album of this. I would be a very happy man.
