The video uses found footage from World War 1, including scenes of soldiers dancing while wearing gas masks, with close up shots of Bowie’s distorted face.

‘I’d Rather Be High’ (Venetian Mix) and former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy’s remix of ‘The Next Day’ track ‘Love Is Lost’ will be released on 12″ white vinyl on December 16. The new release will come in a unique die cut sleeve designed by Jonathan Barnbrook.

Last month four new 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’ is out now and 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 also contains the James Murphy remix of ‘Love Is Lost’.
