Celebrities aren’t usually the ones doing the stalking, but David Bowie re-imagines the role famous people play in other people’s lives in the video accompanying his new single The Stars (Are Out Tonight).
Bowie and Tilda Swinton play a nicely settled middle-aged couple whose comfortable existence is upended when a celebrity pair – Saskia De Brauw and Andrej Pejic – follow them home from the grocery store and take over their space, both physical and emotional. The Norwegian model Iselin Steiro plays the young Bowie. The couples’ roles slowly reverse, calling into question exactly what Swinton and Bowie’s characters mean at the market when they agree, “We have a nice life.” Tilda Swinton being married to David Bowie is also like an alternative album cover for the Psychedelic Furs‘ classic Mirror Moves.
The music video directed by Floria Sigismondi, revisited some of the places the singer used to frequent in Berlin in the Seventies. The Stars (Are Out Tonight) is the second single from Bowie’s twenty-fourth studio album The Next Day (2013).
