Last night David Bowie released another single and video from his forthcoming album, The Next Day.
This time around, we're treated to an upbeat rock track; the previous one, Where Are We Now?, was more meditative and introspective.

I think the song is excellent, and I love how the video is simultaneously strange, sexy and grotesque. The lyrics are available on Bowie's Facebook page:
