David Bowie - The Next Day

The videos from David Bowie's new album The Next Day are really something else. "Where Are We Now?" and "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)" were both brilliant, and the latest one, the clip from the album's title track, is curiously controversial, and was briefly banned from YouTube due to its religious imagery mixed with nudity and a bloody and very graphic stigmata. The clip shows Gary Oldman in the role as a bishop and Marion Cotillard as a prostitute experiencing the stigmata, while Bowie is on stage performing the song dressed as a Christ-like figure. Great video, and the song is of course absolutely brilliant, one of the album's highlights. "Here I am, not quite dying", indeed.

Watch and listen
