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.

It accompanies the second single to be taken from "The Next Day", his first album of new material for a decade which is to be released next month.

Bowie surprised the music world by breaking a decade-long musical silence in January when he unveiled a new single, "Where Are We Now?" to coincide with his 66th birthday.
