Tilda Swinton and David Bowie in his video for "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)"
It's a single on his new album, "The Next Day," "in which fame and death are closely braided themes."
From Stereogum: "David Bowie announced his imminent new album [release date tomorrow, March 12] "The Next Day," his first in 10 years, with a new song and video called "Where Are We Now?" The song was strong, but the video was absolute muddled weirdness. But with a new video for the sweeping, impressive new song "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)," Bowie is, once again, an artist whose visual presence demands to be taken seriously. In the clip, he and fellow glowing alien Tilda Swinton star, making the ultimate leap by playing a solidly predictable bourgie couple. They're haunted by Lynchian visions of freaky, androgynous pop stars, one of whom bears a striking resemblance to a much younger Bowie. Directed by Floria Sigismondi."

She added, "Bowie's music is a lot more interesting than the unrelated dreary and uninspired synth soundtrack."

That's an interesting montage (not the actual video).
If you want to hear the actual music, it's here (until they take it down):
