As if by magic, David Bowie is staging a hype inducing comeback just as a major exhibition about his career is set to open at the V&A, coincidence? You can bet there'll be plenty of questions on that subject at the press view. Where are we now? came as a mahoosive surprise when it was released back in January but now we know there's a new album which will be released in a few weeks- The Next Day. Then today we woke up to a brand new video for one of the tracks on the album, The Stars (Are Out Tonight). You should know this has absolutely nothing to do with Take That's Stardust soundtrack. Actually, it's directed by Floria Sigismondi and shot by Jeff Cronenweth, and is a feast of cool, creepy, clever brilliance for weary, wintered-out souls. Melanie is calling it an "androgynous wet dream". Tilda Swinton stars as Bowie's wife with male model Andrej Pejic- as a girl- and Saskia de Brauw-as a boy- as naughty influencers leading the dogooding marrieds astray from their quietly humdrum suburban life. It's stylish, perverse and brilliant and at FEAL towers we are watching it on a loop. Look out for Dominic Jones' terrifying claws which almost rip off Mr Bowie's beautiful face...
