Rock legend David Bowie has gone all religious on his fans if his latest video is anything to go by.

The 67-year-old music stalwart was on the set of his latest music video for The Next Day in New York in monk robes, flat shoes and a long brown scarf.

Bowie, who has released 24 albums spanning a thirty year career, even roped in his old pal Gary Oldman to star in the music video.

No clues were given by Bowie what the video was about but by the looks of things it involves a dispute over religion.

The video was shot at the American Legion building and many of the extras were wearing similar religious themed clothes.

With a new album out Bowie is enjoying a revived success.

But it may not stop there.

In an interview with Absolute Radio Noel Gallagher said: ‘According to people I’ve spoken to, there’s another album in the pipeline. There was, like, 29 songs or something.’

Gallagher admitted that he didn’t know when the musician might release the new album, saying: “He could disappear for another ten years or there could be another album. He might do the greatest tour of all time or he might never gig again. Who knows?”

There have been rumours regarding a future Bowie tour since the release of The Next Day, his 24th album, earlier this year.
