VIDEO: David Bowie featured in new Louis Vuitton commercial

David Bowie is featured in the latest commercial from fashion house Louis Vuitton.

The ad finds Bowie at a masquerade ball singing “I’d Rather Be High” from his latest album, “The Next Day.” While the original version features guitars, the soundtrack to the commercial presents the song arranged and performed on harpsichord.

Also featuring fashion model Arizona Muse, the ad titled “L'Invitation au Voyage – Venice” was directed by Romain Gavras and shot by David Sims in Venice during the summer.

Louis Vuitton have posted a behind the scenes look at the making of the commercial, as well as two versions of it – a regular 60-second one plus an extended director’s cut that runs 90 seconds.

This past week, Bowie released “The Next Day Extra”, a 3-disc set that includes the original 14-track CD of his 2013 album, a 10-track CD of bonus tracks and a DVD of the four promotional films made for the record: “Where Are We Now?”, “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)”, “The Next Day” and “Valentine’s Day.”

The 10-track bonus CD includes four previously unreleased tracks, two new mixes and “God Bless The Girl”, the track that was only released on the Japanese issue of “The Next Day”. The remaining three tracks gather up the bonus tracks from the deluxe version of the album.

The package also features a lyric booklet and a book of stills from the promo videos.
