Love Is Lost (Hello Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy)

This shoestring-budgeted video stars a puppet from Bowie’s office for a track from the singer’s “The Next Day” album, with an eerie layer added by LCD Soundsystem’s frontman. The well-received album has been re-released with a DVD and bonus tunes.
