David Bowie Features Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard in 'The Next Day'
Bloody stigmata bring a swinging party to a halt in new video

David Bowie doesn't stint on A-list talent: after starring opposite Tilda Swinton in his last video, for "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)," the rocker features Marion Cotillard and Gary Oldman in his new clip for "The Next Day."

Q&A: David Bowie Guitarist Earl Slick on Secret New Album Sessions

The video opens with a priest played by Oldman punching a street-urchin beggar in the face, then continuing into a club filled with clergy engaging in all sorts of un-priestly activity. A Christ-like Bowie sings from a stage while scantily clad women dance suggestively  until one of them, played by Cotillard, develops stigmata, bringing the party to a sudden, bloody halt.

"The Next Day" is the title track from Bowie's latest album, which he released in March after a surprise announcement revealing its existence on his 66th birthday in January. The Next Day was Bowie's first collection of new material since Reality in 2003.
