David Bowie has released the title track from his current album The Next Day as a single.

The video was directed by Floria Sigismundi – the photographer and filmmaker who directed Bowie’s last video, “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)”. She also directed The Runaways and the video for Justin Timberlake’s “Mirrors”.

The video for “The Next Day“, which is set in a pub, stars Gary Oldman and Marion Cotillard alongside Bowie.

Bowie plays a Christ-like figure, Oldman portrays a priest and Cotillard plays a saint-like character while a Cardinal hands out cash and a nun prays.

Bowie and Oldman previously joined forces in 1995, when they recorded a duet of Bowie’s “You’ve Been Around” for guitarist Reeves Gabrels’ album The Sacred Squall Of Now. They worked together again in 1996 on the Jean-Michel Basquiat biopic Basquiat with Bowie portraying Andy Warhol and Oldman in the role of a fellow painter loosely based on Julian Schnabel.

All three have previously starred in Christopher Nolan films. Bowie starred in The Prestige, while Oldman is an alumni of all three Batman films, the last of which co-starred Cotillard.
