David Bowie‘s latest music video is rather simple when compared to the others he’s released this year – those being “Where Are We Now?“, “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)“, and “The Next Day.” In “Valentine’s Day,” the singer rocks out with his guitar in an old building. Check out the clip below.
Directed by, Indrani and Markus Klinko, “Valentine’s Day” is the fourth music video (and single) from Bowie’s latest album The Next Day. They previously collaborated with the singer on the artwork for his critically acclaimed 2002 album Heathen.
“Valentine’s Day” doesn’t include elaborate costumes, creepy story-lines or even star power (besides Bowie, of course). The video is pretty straightforward, and the only “weird” thing in it are Bowie’s eyes. Check it out:
“Valentine’s Day” will be issued as a limited-edition picture disc from Aug. 19, with the track “Plan” on the b-side.
On August 20th, “Valentine’s Day” will be released as a limited-edition 7″ picture disc, along with the track “Plan” on the b-side. According to Bowie’s Facebook page, the single comes housed in a plastic sleeve “overprinted with a white square so that the disc shows through the transparent lettering.”
There’s still no word on whether or not Bowie will be hitting the road to support The Next Day (but we’re hopeful).
