LONDON (AFP) - David Bowie shares an on-screen kiss with British actress Tilda Swinton in the video for his latest single released on Tuesday.

In the promo for The Stars (Are Out Tonight), the British rock icon and Oscar winner Swinton play a staid husband and wife whose domestic bliss is destroyed by a celebrity couple.

Bowie also comes face to face with his younger self, played by Norwegian model Iselin Steiro who is seen dressed as Bowie in the late-1970s look he adopted for the sleeve of his album Low.

The video is directed by Floria Sigismondi, who made Bowie's Little Wonder video 17 years ago.
