David Bowie sings 'I'd Rather Be High' in new film for Louis Vuitton – watch

The full length version of the 'L'Invitation Au Voyage' promo is available to watch now

The full-length version of David Bowie's film for French fashion house Louis Vuitton is available online – watch it above.

Bowie sings a new version of his track 'I’d Rather Be High' in the advert, which is directed by Romain Gavras, the man behind the videos for MIA's 'Bad Girls' and 'Born Free'. The song is taken from his Bowie's recent album 'The Next Day'.

The film, titled 'L'Invitation Au Voyage', stars American fashion model Arizona Muse, who arrives at the Louvre in Paris on a hot-air balloon, and then travels to Venice. She encounters Bowie at an elaborate ball, where he performs a 'I’d Rather Be High' accompanies by a harpsichord. Watch a behind-the-scenes film of the making of the video below.

Bowie recently debuted the video for the James Murphy remix of his his song 'Love Is Lost'. The clip, which cost just £8 to make and features a pair of puppets from Bowie's archive, was shot on a home camera with the help of assistant Jimmy King and best friend Coco Schwab and has been described by those close to singer as a "strangely moving gothic inflected story line perfect for Halloween".

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.

Last month (October 30), fournew Bowie songs were premiered online. 'Atomica', 'The Informer', 'Like A Rocket Man' and 'Born In A UFO' 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'.
