David Bowie - "I'd Rather Be High" video

In the recent Louis Vuitton-commercial short film L’Invitation Au Voyage, David Bowie sang a solo-piano version of “I’d Rather Be High,” a song from his comeback album The Next Day, at a Venice costume ball. And on the new deluxe edition of The Next Day, there’s a “Venetian Mix” of the song, which adds a ton of harpsichords to the album version. Now director Tom Hingston has put together a video for that Venetian mix, which combines World War 2-era stock footage with brief, ghostly glimpses of Bowie. Watch it below.

The deluxe edition of The Next Day is out now on Columbia.
