Gary Oldman to appear in new David Bowie video

Gary Oldman looks set to star in the new David Bowie video.

Bowie was photographed wearing long brown religious robes alongside the actor on the set for the video of ‘The Next Day’, which will be the third single from his new album of the same name.

The pair previously joined forces in 1995, when they recorded a duet of Bowie’s ‘You’ve Been Around’ for guitarist Reeves Gabrels’ album ‘The Sacred Squall Of Now’.

Oldman is the second actor friend Bowie has enlisted this year, following Tilda Swinton, who played his onscreen wife in the video for ‘The Stars (Are Out Tonight)’, the second single from ‘The Next Day’, which was released in February.

Earlier this month, Noel Gallagher announced that Bowie has “another album in the pipeline”. The former Oasis man hinted that the legendary singer has enough leftover material from his new album ‘The Next Day’ for another record. “According to people I’ve spoken to, there’s another album in the pipeline. There was, like, 29 songs or something.”

However, Gallagher could not say when any new album would be released and admitted that it could be another decade before the record sees the light of day. “I don’t know what’s next for Bowie. He could disappear for another 10 years or there could be another album,” he said. “He might do the greatest tour of all time or he might never gig again. Who knows?”

NME‘s special collectors’ magazine on David Bowie is out now and includes the complete Bowie story, iconic and rare photographs, every era and character analysed, plus classic NME interviews with Bowie himself.
