Happy hump day (literally) from David Bowie

He’s released another new song, accompanied by a short film starring Tilda Swinton.

“HAPPY HUMP DAY PHIL” says David Bowie in the opening seconds of his new video, released online yesterday.

The short film to accompany The Stars (Are Out Tonight) stars Tilda Swinton and was directed by Floria Sigismondi – who also directed the videos for Little Wonder and Dead Man Walking, and sees Swinton and Bowie as a couple tormented by celebrities.
