David Bowie has unveiled his brilliant new video for 'The Stars (Are Out Tonight)', showing actress Tilda Swinton and him as just a normal suburban couple.

In what seems to be a musing on society's obsession with celebrity, the promo for the second single from Bowie's new album 'The Next Day' also deals with androgyny.

The video features Norwegian model Iselin Steiro, who is seen dressed as Bowie in the late Seventies look he adopted for his 'Low' album sleeve.

The film - directed by Floria Sigismondi, who made his 'Little Wonder' video 17 years ago - starts off with Bowie and Swinton as a comfortable, staid couple whose lives are transformed by a pair of androgynous figures, played by models Andrej Pejic and Saskia De Brauw.

Bowie's first album of new songs in a decade is set to be released next month and he has once again teamed up with long-time collaborator Tony Visconti for the new material.

The 'Heroes' singer surprised fans by suddenly announcing his comeback last month after years of withdrawing from the spotlight, with the release of a single 'Where Are We Now?' on his 66th birthday.
