David Bowie unveils new video 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)' starring Tilda Swinton - watch

The song is the second track to be taken from the legend's comeback album 'The Next Day'

David Bowie has unveiled a brand new track titled 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)'. Click above to listen to the song and watch the video, which stars Tilda Swinton as Bowie's wife.

The video was directed by Floria Sigismondi, who was also behind the videos for Bowie's 'Little Wonder' in 1996 and 'Dead Man Walking' in 1997. 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)' is now available to purchase digitally.

The new issue of NME, which comes out tomorrow (February 27), stars David Bowie and features an exclusive cover shot for NME in New York, as well as the whole story on 'The Next Day' and a full review of the album.

Bowie shocked fans and the media alike last month, when he broke his decade-long musical silence by revealing a new song 'Where Are We Now?' and announcing that an album, titled 'The Next Day', would follow. The album has been produced by Bowie's longtime collaborator Tony Visconti and will be released in the UK on March 11.

David Bowie's guitarist Gerry Leonard recently revealed that Bowie might tour off the back of the album. "I would say that it's 50-50," he told Rolling Stone. "A couple of times, when we played back one of the more kick-ass tunes from the new record, he'd be like, 'This would be great live!' Of course, everyone was like, 'What? Did he just say that?' But other times he'd just roll his eyes if someone brought up playing live."
