David Bowie does it again

Last month, David Bowie surprised almost everybody by releasing a new single. The surprise was at least as much from the fact that the new song was as good as it was as the fact that it existed at all, at a point when most people had assumed that Bowie had lapsed into a dignified retirement. The even bigger surprise was that the album is getting some very good reviews from people who’ve had the chance to hear it before the rest of us[1], and I’m most definitely looking forward to hearing it in a couple of weeks.

So it probably shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to learn that he’s put out another single, with the same amount of warning as the previous one. The video shows David and Tilda Swinton as a quite respectable couple having trouble with their new neighbours, one of whom looks entirely like a young David Bowie…
