New David Bowie video reinstated after YouTube ban

The controversial new David Bowie video is streaming once again on YouTube after being banned by the site.

A spokesperson for Bowie said that the promo for "The Next Day" single had been removed from the streaming site as it "contravened their terms of use".

However, the video is once again up on the site, with a YouTube spokesperson telling Billboard: "With the massive volume of videos on our site, sometimes we make the wrong call. When it's brought to our attention that a video has been removed mistakenly, we act quickly to reinstate it."

Alongside Bowie, the video features actors Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard.

'The Next Day' is the third single to be taken from Bowie's current album of the same name. The video was directed by Floria Sigismundi - the photographer and filmmaker who directed Bowie's last video, "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)".
