In a statement the flamboyant frontman explained that the video was a tribute to Elvis Presley and German performer Klaus Nomi.
“For me this video is my homage to two of my biggest heroes, Elvis Presley and Klaus Nomi,” he said. “I always wondered what both of those geniuses would be doing if they were both still with us.
“Elvis and Klaus were some of the greatest radical visionaries the world has ever seen, never forget them. This is my first music video shot outside of the United Kingdom, filmed all on Pier 52, I think, on Manhattan island, a couple of piers down from the home of Studio 54.
“The outfit I am wearing was made by my long term collaborator Ada Zanditon out of bin bags from Whitechapel Market in London, flown to New York in its own suitcase at great excess baggage cost.”
