The evidently controversial new video from David Bowie has been banned by YouTube.

A spokesperson for Bowie said that the promo for “The Next Day” single had been removed from the streaming site as it apparently went against YouTube’s terms of use. They commented: “They took it down as they say it contravened their terms of use”.

No further reason has been given for the removal of the video, though it is thought that the promo’s religious themes may have been a factor.

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)”.
