David Bowie could have taken the safe route. Release a new album, do a couple of interviews, shoot a few mild videos, and be back home in time for his afternoon tea. But no – even in his 60′s, Bowie likes a bit of a good old controversy. In the video for the title track of his last album, The Next Day, he summons the actors Gary Oldman and Academy winner, Marion Cotillard.
In the video, which has been removed from Youtube, and then brought back, Bowie acts as a sort of Christ and Oldman is christian priest who condemns him. There’s also quite a bit of blood in the chapel. Take a look, and then head over to iMesh to download the entire album.
