Following his #3 placing in our end of year list, David Bowie has announced that he'll be releasing the excellent Venetian Mix of The Next Day track 'I'd Rather Be High', previously heard on the Louis Vuitton advert, on a white vinyl 12". It will be the B-side to the previously heard James Murphy remix of 'Love Is Lost', and is out on December 16 in a special die-cut sleeve designed by Jonathan Barnbrook. Both of the tracks feature on the expanded version of the album, The Next Day Extra, which is out now.

To mark the news, Bowie's posted the Tom Hingston-directed video for 'I'd Rather Be High' (Venetian Mix), which you can watch below, and scroll down to see what the 12" sleeve looks like:
