Fresh Look Life Mars

As if you needed another reason to take five minutes out of your day to celebrate the genius of David Bowie .

Renowned rock photographer and director Mick Rock has dusted off the film from Bowie's 1973 original video for Life on Mars? — which has the Starman sporting a powder blue suit and vivid makeup as he struts his way through the track — and touched it up.

The changes aren’t drastic, in that the video is very much a new-and-improved version of the classic; on the occasion of Parlophone’s release of Bowie - Legacy , a collection of the Thin White Duke’s most beloved singles, Rock jumped at the opportunity to revisit one of his legendary works.

I had a little gem and I wanted to polish it into a state where it was absolutely perfect, Rock tells The Guardian of the Life on Mars? edit. I had the black and white segments, and when I came across that very last bit after the music stopped, I thought it was a little gift, so I made it into an epilogue. People like the original video , but I think this version takes it to another level. The scenes really add a new flavor for it. I’m really happy with it, and I’m interested to see what the fans make of it.
