Just announced on Bowie's Facebook page, the clip was directed by Canadian Italian writer/director Floria Sigismondi and was shot in Los Angeles over two days in January.
The film co-stars Tilda Swinton and two other top female models: Iselin Steiro and Saskia de Brauw.
According to Bowie's Facebook, Bowie and Swinton play a happily married couple, while de Brauw and Pejic vamp it up as a "celebrity couple" who 'disturb and rearrange' the Bowie-Swintons' marital bliss. Cast as "a vocalist", Steiro is styled up to look like a dead ringer for a young Bowie.
The story "at once captures a twenty first century moment in its convergence of age, gender and the normal/celebrity divide", according to the Facebook blurb.
Pejic makes several costume changes. In one scene, he appears half-naked as a kind of glamorous night terror who straddles Bowie while he is sleeping and kisses him. Pejic later appears as Swinton's character, in Sixties makeup and wig.
"Basically I can just die now..." noted Pejic on Twitter this afternoon, posting a link to the YouTube clip.
Sigismondi is no stranger to the music video genre, having directed clips for many artists, including Pink, Marilyn Manson - she directed The Beautiful People in 1996 - and Bowie himself (Little Wonder in 1996 and Dead Man Walking in 1997). She also directed the 2010 feature film The Runaways, starring Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart.
