David Bowie has debuted the video for his song 'Love Is Lost' – click at the top of the page to watch.

The clip, which cost just £8 to make and features a pair of puppets from Bowie's archive, was premiered at last night's Mercury Prize ceremony. The singer's 'The Next Day' album was nominated for the gong, but lost out to eventual winner James Blake and his 'Overgrown' LP.

Shot on a home camera with the help of assistant Jimmy King and best friend Coco Schwab, the video, which is described by those close to Bowie as a "strangely moving gothic inflected story line perfect for Halloween", was edited in his office in Mahattan. The only cost incurred in the whole process was the $12.99 (£8.08) needed for a USB stick to download the finished video onto.

Yesterday (October 30), four new Bowie songs were premiered online. 'Atomica', 'The Informer', 'Like A Rocket Man' and 'Born In A UFO' will all feature on the three disc edition of his latest album, 'The Next Day'. 'The Next Day Extra' includes the original 14-track album, a 10-track CD of bonus songs and a DVD featuring the four videos made for the album: 'Where Are We Now?', 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)', 'The Next Day' and 'Valentine's Day'. The new release will also contain the James Murphy remix of 'Love Is Lost'.
