The 10-minute video was the video premiered during last night’s Mercury Music Prize ceremony at London’s Roundhouse.
The origins of the video were disclosed in a post on David Bowie’s website:
“Last week David Bowie had an idea. His new single, ‘Love Is Lost’, was to be released this week and a video clip was needed.
“Eschewing both celebrity guests and splashy production, Bowie picked up his domestic camera from home, rescued a couple of puppets from his legendary archive and wrote, shot and edited the entire video over this last weekend in the darkened corridor of his office in Manhattan, New York.
“With his assistant Jimmy King on camera and best friend Coco Schwab handling everything from continuity to sandwiches they worked through the evenings finishing on Monday morning, sending it out to the rest of the world.
“The result of this speedy production is a strangely moving gothic inflected storyline perfect for Halloween. And the cost? Just $12.99 for the thumb drive to download the finished video on.”
Bowie has also released four new songs online. “Atomica“, “The Informer”, “Like A Rocket Man” and “Born In A UFO”, which feature on the three disc edition of his latest album, The Next Day.
