A newly remastered video of the late Ziggy Stardust icon and former Smiths frontman has been shared as their cover was released last week.

A live performance featuring David Bowie and Morrissey from the 90s has been given an update for fans to enjoy.

The remastered video sees the late icon join the former Smiths frontman for a cover of T-Rex's Cosmic Dancer while on stage at the Inglewood Forum in Los Angeles on 6 February 1991.

Morrissey is first to sing on the atmospheric track, which is taken from the Marc Bolan-fronted band's 1971 album, Electric Warrior.

The LA crowd are pretty chuffed by the cover as it is, but they are ecstatic once they hear Bowie's unmistakeable vocals and see him walk on stage.

The updated visuals were shared to support the release of their cover on streaming platforms on Friday (13 November).

A double-A side single featuring this cover and Morrissey's version of The Jam's That's Entertainment is set for release on 19 February and available to pre-order now.
